The Dublin Library will host a film and follow-up discussion on a documentary about how a community worked together to overcome tragedy, stand up to hate, and create a safe town for all. See "Waking in Oak Creek" on Thursday, November 15, 6:00-7:30 p.m. A guided discussion afterwards will help people reflect on the film and current events.
"Waking in Oak Creek" depicts the year following a tragic hate crime at a Sikh temple in suburban Wisconsin, as thousands gather for vigils and community events to honor the victims and seek connection. Together, a community rocked by hate is awakened and transformed by the Sikh spirit of relentless optimism.
The documentary is 35 minutes long and will be followed by a discussion led by a representative from Jakara Movement, a grassroots community-building organization. This event is in honor of United Against Hate Week. Visit the Jakara Movement website for more events happening in communities around the Bay Area.
