Lazar Law Center at SIU

6:30 PM Program begins in the Auditorium

8:00 PM Light refreshments served in the Formal Lounge of the Law Center

The program format will include:

An interfaith dialogue with the audience interacting with four guest speakers representing groups that have been oppressed: Jews, Muslims, African Americans and Transgender/Gay.

We will show a video (1/2 hour) from FACING HISTORY AND OURSELVES of the film Weapons of the Spirit. This is a documentary of a small French town of 5000 peasants that saved 5000 Jews escaping the Holocaust.

We hope to attract SIU students and community members from Carbondale’s religious groups.
