Christ Church, the Easton Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (EDIT), and the Easton Public Library are excited to announce that their Racial Justice Film Series begins this Thursday from 7 – 10 p.m. at the Easton Public Library.
This week’s film will feature Ava DuVernay’s groundbreaking 2016 film “13th”, which reveals the history of racism that contributes to present day injustices in our prison system.
Please register to attend here.
Each film in the series is free and open to all and will occur every second Thursday through May. Coffee will be served. “I am so thrilled to be partnering with Christ Church and EDIT on this important and timely initiative,” said Library Director Lynn Zaffino. “We hope many will join us this week and in the months to come.”
Christ Church’s Priest-in-Charge Rev. Ally Brundige notes, “We have chosen four films that raise a wide range of issues including our criminal processing system, voting rights, efforts to heal from past racial traumas, and rural immigrant experiences that we hope will inspire us to each, in our own way, act to address racial injustice wherever it stands.”
Whendi Cook Broderick, Co-Chair of the Easton Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (EDIT) adds, “EDIT is excited to explore these topics with the community through film and dialogue. This is a great opportunity to foster deeper understanding and connection.”
