“The Canary Effect” – documentary film

June 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Jones Library, 43 Amity St.
Amherst, MA 01002 United States
+ Google Map
Free

A powerful, award-winning documentary that brings past and present together re: indigenous people and the United States. We are showing this film out of the belief that what white people in our nation did, and are still doing, to the American Indian, is a central element in the thought-structure and system of white supremacy that still dominates our society today. Our reluctance to face this history limits our capacity to dismantle racism.

Vigil for Their Lives

June 15 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Springfield Court Square Springfield, MA 01103 United States + Google Map

We’ve petitioned Smith and Wesson, we’ve talked to our elected officials, we're fighting against an incumbent with an A rating with the NRA, and we’re not going to stop fighting for what we believe in: common sense gun control. However, we need to stop and honor the lives that were lost during these senseless killings. Students, with futures. Teachers, with a future to give. Their deaths could’ve been avoidable. We honor them on June 15th, rain or shine.
