As part of the national United Against Hate Week movement, SCPL has partnered with Santa Cruz County United for Safe and Inclusive Communities (SCCUSIC) to bring community members together through films, conversations and actionable opportunities to prevent hate violence and to build safe, inclusive environments where everyone can participate in public life.
Join community leaders as they discuss the topics raised in ‘Not in Our Town’ short films and share their perspectives on addressing and preventing hate/ bias incidents that occur in Santa Cruz County. Hear differing community approaches to supporting policies and system changes that contribute to a safe and more inclusive community. We invite people from all walks of life to discover how every community member can play a part charting a better future.
Films will be made available for free viewing during United Against Week on the Watsonville Film Festival virtual platform. Link will be provided Nov. 14 – 20, 2021. Watching the selection of Not In Our Town Films is recommended, but not required to participate and learn. Our Facilitator for this event is Rabbi Paula Marcus. Registration is required for this virtual event.
