Against Hate
Saturday, June 18 |
11:00am
Free Screening & Community Roundtable
Tivoli Cinemas in Westport
 

After a corporate oil giant blacks out the sky, it turns its fire on a queer councilwoman who courageously dared to fight back

A high-stakes David and Goliath battle, AGAINST HATE documents the campaign of racist, sexist, and homophobic attacks on Jovanka Beckles, a Richmond, California council member who was repeatedly verbally assaulted at public meetings degrading her identity as a queer woman of color.

But the deliberate, well-funded and political dirty tricks used to push her off the council were met with a powerful grassroots community mobilization effort. Jovanka Beckles epitomized grace under pressure and this new film inspires with powerful insights on how to successfully fight back against hate speech and homophobic harassment.

Roundtable facilitated by Dr. Bob Minor, Founder of The Fairness Project. Director BK Williams and local Richmond citizens will join in the conversation via Skype.

Be here for this interactive screening event with Kansas City area activists, organizers and concerned citizens.
