Back in March, The Pluralism Project, Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice, and the Harvard Migration and Immigrant Incorporation Workshop cosponsored the screening of A Dream in Doubt, a documentary chronicling Rana Singh Sodhi’s (brother of Balbir Singh Sodhi, the first post-9/11 hate crime murder victim) journey to bring attention to his own tragedy and the ordeals faced by Sikhs in America after 9/11 through education, self-courage, and leadership.

Oops. You didn’t make it to the event. No worries! The film is being screened again, not once but twice! in the Boston area:

Friday, April 18, 2008 at 7:00 PM
First Church Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist
6 Eliot St., Jamaica Plain

Saturday, April 19, 2008 at 2:00 PM
Rabb Lecture Hall, Boston Public Library
700 Boylston St., Copley Square

But, wait! There’s more!

Take action by supporting more comprehensive hate crimes legislation. The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (LLEHCPA) is a bill that has been passed by the House but not by the Senate. And you know what that means: we need to speak up, raise our collective voice, and tell our representatives to approve it already! E-mail your senator urging him/her to support this bill.

Special thanks to punjaban for always keeping the sangat in the loop.
