When Congressman John Lewis advocates “get in the way,” he stands behind his words, whether advancing civil rights in the 1960s or leading a 26-hour sit-in for gun control in the House a year ago following the Orlando shootings. Former chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), an original Freedom Rider and a leader of the Selma march on Bloody Sunday, Lewis has always advocated nonviolence. “Non-violence is love in action,” and Lewis still has plenty to spread around. Lewis’ exemplary story will inspire you to get in the way. View Flyer

Documentary: "Paper Lanterns"
Saturday, August 12, 1:30 p.m.

In the summer of 1945, the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan. On August 6, “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima, and three days later, “Fat Man” was dropped on Nagasaki. Hundreds of thousands of people were killed, including 12 American POWs. On that same early August morning, a young Japanese boy, Shigeaki Mori, would witness the Hiroshima explosion. He survived that day, but his life was changed forever. “Paper Lanterns” is a film about Mr. Mori’s struggle to share the stories of those who died, including the American POWs. It’s about the humanity and compassion shown by those who were in the heart of the destruction. It’s about the generation that survived and their struggle for peace, compassion, and a world free of nuclear weapons. View Flyer
