“Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness” tells the story of residents of a Long Island village taking action after a local immigrant is killed in a hate crime attack by seven teenagers. While starkly revealing the trauma of hate, the film provides a blueprint for people who want to do something before intolerance turns to violence.

The hour-long documentary, narrated by Academy Award® nominee Alfre Woodard, will be followed by a discussion about what local residents can do to stop hate in their community. Communities across the country use the film to initiate dialogue about intolerance and anti-immigrant violence.
