The Activists: War, Peace & Politics in the Streets Screening

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Activists and activism have long been a part of the struggle for peace and justice in American politics and society. Activists have fought battles for civil rights, voter enfranchisement, collective bargaining, and an end to wars. The Activists brings to life the stories of ordinary people who tried to stop and end the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Indeed, democracy requires more than just one vote every four years. It requires continued pressure by citizens on their government.
