This program year, IMPACT’s “Film and Discussion” series is focused on cross-racial solidarity. The purpose of each film is to understand each other’s struggles, histories we haven’t been taught, and how these topics connect to our pursuit of justice and liberation today. This series builds on our June webinar Building a Multi-Racial Movement: Challenges + Promises. Watch that webinar here: https://impactsilverspring.org/building_justice/

In honor of MoCo’s Indigenous Peoples’ Day on October 12th and national Native American Heritage Month in November, IMPACT is hosting an online viewing and discussion of the award-winning documentary “Warrior Women.”
“Warrior Women” tells the story of mothers and daughters fighting for Indigenous rights in the American Indian Movement. The documentary explores what it means to balance a movement with motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down from generation to generation in the face of a government that has continually met Native resistance with mass violence.
