Inspiring and Instigating Timely Nonviolent Action

Come join your local community for our monthly Peacebuilding Film Series! This event is free and open to the public.

This Month's Feature Film: "Love and Solidarity"

Love and Solidarity is an exploration of nonviolence and organizing through the life and teachings of Rev. James Lawson. Lawson provided crucial strategic guidance while working with Martin Luther King, Jr., in southern freedom struggles and the Memphis sanitation strike of 1968. Moving to Los Angeles in 1974, Lawson continued his nonviolence organizing in multi-racial community and worker coalitions that have helped to remake the LA labor movement.

Through interviews and historical documents, acclaimed labor and civil rights historian Michael Honey ("To the Promised Land: Martin Luther King and the Fight for Economic Justice") and award-winning filmmaker Errol Webber put Lawson's discourse on nonviolent direct action on the front burner of today's struggles against economic inequality, racism and violence, and for human rights, peace, and economic justice.

Here is the trailer.
