Event Details:

Join us for the first screening of the Brave New Films Series this year! This series will explore the intersection of faith and activism.

Following their Lead: Youth in Action
Youth leaders have been instrumental in leading progressive movements throughout American history. During the Civil Rights Movement, young people played a pivotal role in ending segregation through nonviolent sit-ins and walk-outs. Youth organizers in the late sixties were responsible for lowering the voting age to 18. And more recently, Parkland students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School organized one of the largest youth-led protests to date, mobilizing over 1.2 million people for the March for Our Lives protest.

Young people are still using their collective power to lead change-making movements. This film spotlights youth-led advocacy groups across the country who are creating positive change on critical social and political issues.

7:00-7:30 pm - Refreshments
7:30 pm - Screening of "Following their Lead: Youth in Action", followed by a discussion with Brave New Films Fellow Noely Mendoza
