  • Film streaming online – Feb. 19-21

  • Zoom discussion with Tamar Manasseh and film producer Brad Rothschild

Sunday, Feb. 21 | 7 PM

When Tamar Manasseh decided to set up a presence on her Chicago block, she did so as a mother and neighbor, who wanted the gun violence to stop. Six years later, the organization she founded, MASK (Mothers and Men Against Senseless Killings) is credited with plummeting violence in that neighborhood. Join Tamar and the film’s producer and director on Sunday, Feb 21st for an energetic and fascinating discussion.
