Center for Jewish Peoplehood

The Osher Marin JCC joins with Canal Alliance and Not in Our Town to present an evening dedicated to combatting hate and intolerance in Marin.

The evening will begin with a candlelight vigil followed by a film screening of Light in the Darkness, a panel discussion with local community leaders, and opportunities for audience questions, stories and discussion.

Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness is a 30 minute documentary about a town coming together to take action after anti-immigrant violence devastates the community.

In 2008, a series of attacks against Latino residents of Patchogue, New York culminate with the murder of Marcelo Lucero, an Ecuadorian immigrant who had lived in the Long Island village for 13 years.

Over a two-year period, the story follows Mayor Paul Pontieri, the victim’s brother, Joselo Lucero, and Patchogue residents as they openly address the underlying causes of the violence, work to heal divisions, and begin taking steps to ensure everyone in their village will be safe and respected.

The film and program are intended for middle school students through adults.

PANELISTS INCLUDE:

  • Diana Bishop, San Rafael Police Chief
  • Mary Jane Burke, Marin County Superintendent of Schools
  • Lucia Martel, Immigration and Social Services Director, Canal Alliance
  • Peg Sandel, Head of School, Brandeis Marin
