Finding Our Voices: Stories of American Dissent

This 50-minute documentary highlights eight men and women, each moved by individual experience and conscience to speak out against their government. Their moral leadership helped forge the nationwide protest of the invasion of Iraq. They include a diplomat, a Congressman, a grandmother; two soldiers and the mother of one who was killed. These eight stand for many other citizens who marched, lobbied, gave up jobs or retirement, and risked ridicule and imprisonment to live their beliefs and show how any of us can wage peace.

Laurel Jensen, Producer of the Film, will facilitate a Q&A period about the role of civil disobedience and non-violent action & the ways we may all work for a just society. This film is part of the City of Greenbelt’s Peace Month and is planned by the Prince George’s County Peace & Justice Coalition.
