Leading up to Peace Day on September 21, we’re hosting a virtual film festival to expose the impact of militarism around the world and the power of nonviolence. The festival will span 3 weekends — Saturday, September 4, September 11, and September 18 — covering a multitude of themes, from colonial violence in Canada and military base pollution in Washington State, to a coup d’état in Haiti and nonviolent peacekeeping in Bougainville. Each film screening will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the directors and special guests to explore the topics covered in the films and how to take action. Get your tickets!
