Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness tells the story of the residents in a Long Island community taking action after a local immigrant is killed in a hate crime attack. The story provides a blueprint for people who want to do something before intolerance turns to violence. The film airs nationwide on PBS stations on Wed, Sep 21, (10pm on KQED 9).
As part of Not In Our Town National Week of Action, Sep 18-24, communities throughout the country will host screenings, events and discussions on hate crime prevention and new ways to make their towns safer for everyone.
