|Not in Our Town: Light in the Darkness|
"Not in Our Town: Light in the Darkness" documents the story of a town coming together to take action after anti-immigrant violence devastates the community. In 2008, a series of attacks against Latino residents of Patchogue, NY culminate with the murder of Marcelo Lucero, an Ecuadorian immigrant who had lived in the Long Island village for 13 years.
The film will be followed by a roundtable community discussion. Participants will include Dan Tichenor, the Philip H. Knight Professor of Political Science at the University of Oregon and a Senior Fellow at the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, Rhian Miller, Senior Producer and Co-Founder of The Working Group, City of Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy, Ranfis Villatoro, an organizer with CAUSA, Oregon's Immigration Rights Coalition and Juan Carlos Valle, Board President at Centro LatinoAmericano
The program is free and open to the public. Donations accepted at the door.
