Join us as we watch a film about fighting racism on the streets and in the

schools in Brooklyn, NY.

One of the teachers in the film will be there to introduce us to this

ongoing, national struggle.

There will be discussion after the film and refreshments in the church

social hall.

Co-Sponsored by UUSM Faith In Action Commission and ACLU

Kimani Gray was 16 when he was shot by an NYPD officer March 10, 2013; CJ

Snell was 18 when he was shot by an LAPD officer October 1, 2016. Every week

we hear that another young man or woman,

usually Black or Latino, has been killed by police. As Lisa Simpson, mother

of Richard Risher, Jr., an 18-year-old shot to death by the LAPD July 26,

2016 said to District Attorney Lacey at the

Town Hall meeting October 17, \"How long are you going to keep standing there

and let them kill us?\"

That question is on all our minds, no matter if we are the ones whose

children are killed, or are friends of the family, or just trying to figure

out what is going on in our streets. Kathleen Foster, a filmmaker who spoke

at UU Santa Monica in 2009 when she screened her documentary, \"Afghan Women: a

History of Struggle,\" has made a new documentary, \"Profiled,\" released in

early 2016 by Women Make Movies, which describes the film this way:

PROFILED knits the stories of mothers of Black and Latin youth murdered by

the NYPD into a powerful indictment of racial profiling and police

brutality, and places them within a historical context of the roots

of racism in the U.S. Some of the victims-Eric Garner, Michael Brown-are now

familiar the world over. Others, like Shantel Davis and Kimani Gray, are

remembered mostly by family and friends in their

New York neighborhoods. Ranging from the routine harassment of minority

students in an affluent Brooklyn neighborhood to the killings and protests

in Staten Island and Ferguson, Missouri,

PROFILED bears witness to the racist violence that remains an everyday

reality for Black and Latin people in this country and gives us a window

into one of the burning issues of our time.\"
