fruitvale station

In light of the latest spate of protests and riots exposing police abuse against persons of color across the U.S., the Peace & Justice Center in collaboration with UUCM opens the floor to discussion on the topic of racism and police brutality in America.

A mainstream drama, “Fruitvale Station” tells the true story of Oscar Grant, a young black man from Oakland who was shot and killed on a train platform by a BART police officer.  The film won both the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.   Those interested in issues of race and the rise of police abuse are encouraged to attend and join in the facilitated discussion to follow the film.

Hot tea and treats available for purchase.

All proceeds shared with UUCM and the Peace and Justice Center of Nevada County, whose mission of bringing information to the public about matters of local and international concern are addressed.
