Justice Night at the Movies -- "A Force More Powerful" pt.3

Wed. Oct. 15th, 7PM, Bridgeport United Church of Christ, 621 NE 76th Ave.

"A Force More Powerful" is a 4 part documentary series that explores one of the 20th century's most important but least understood stories - how nonviolent power has overcome oppression and authoritarian rule all over the world. An inspiring and lively discussion following the films will be led by David Delk of the Alliance for Democracy. Free.

This week we'll learn how the people of 2 European nations used non violence in horrifying situations. We'll see historic footage of how Denmark banded together to non-violently subvert fascism and save over 7000 Danish Jews. And we'll learn how striking Polish workers used their leverage to negotiate unprecedented rights and a new governing party, where there was no power separate from the communist party. Admission: Free
