SOS Crown Heights 101 and The Interrupters TONIGHT

See below regarding tonight's event from SOS Crown Heights, whose critically important work to prevent gun violence has reduced shootings in their catchment area (central Crown Heights) by nearly 60% in the past year. Additionally, ILFA saw "The Interrupters" during SOS's "Week of Peace" a few weeks ago, and it was without a doubt one of the most powerful films I have ever watched. Absolutely incredible.

Dear S.O.S. Supporters,

Please join us on Wednesday 11/9 to learn more about S.O.S. at our "S.O.S. 101" meeting!
Learn more about the philosophy and approach and how you can get involved to stop gun violence in Crown Heights. The meeting will be at the Crown Heights Mediation Center, 256 Kingston Ave (between Lincoln and St. John's), from 5:30-7pm. RSVP by calling 718-773-6886.

Then go see "The Interrupters" at the IFC Center at 9pm! This critically acclaimed documentary profiles the Violence Interrupters of the Chicago CeaseFire project, on which S.O.S. is based.  You can see a trailer of the film and buy tickets online here. You can also buy tickets in-person on the day of the show or in advance at the IFC Center (323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street in Manhattan, open daily 10:30am–10pm).  If you can't make it to the film festival, it is also showing this week at CineClub at 285 Kent Avenue in Brooklyn. More details are here.

We hope to see you soon. Thank you for all you do for our community!
 - The S.O.S. Team
