What is your organization doing to celebrate United Nations Peace Day this year?
At the Interfaith Center at the Presidio, they will be hosting a screening of the film Waking in Oak Creek. The film profiles a suburban town rocked by hate after six worshippers at a Sikh Temple are killed by a white supremacist. In the year following the attack, the film highlights a community and law enforcement working together to overcome tragedy, stand up to hate, and create a safe town for all. There will be a showing open to the public 2:00 – 3:30 pm on the Day of Peace September 21. [Flyer]
