Community Building with Film

September 20, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Discover how films can bring people together, spark conversations, and inspire positive change. Join Shoulder to Shoulder on Wednesday, September 20th at 2pmET for a 90-minute conversation about the power of film as a tool to support community healing, process experiences of violence, and engage new communities in the important ongoing work of building a pluralistic and inclusive country.

This conversation will feature Aber Kawas, a community organizer featured in An Act of Worship, Pardeep Singh Kaleka co-director of Not in Our Town, and Dr. Hussein Rashid a professor and scholar of religion specializing in Muslims and American Popular Culture. This conversation will equip community leaders with a new and growing list of films and resources they can use in their community conversations and engagement as we explore how films can help change hearts, minds, and actions. 

From exploring the role of documentaries in raising awareness about social issues to discussing the influence of fictional films in shaping our perceptions, this event offers a unique opportunity to delve into the world of community building through cinema. Register here.
