Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness is a one-hour 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.
In partnership with Brandeis Marin, Congregation Rodef Sholom, Islamic Center of Mill Valley, Islamic Center of North Marin, Marin Interfaith Council, Venetia Valley School


Free, RSVP required.
