THE BOYS WHO SAID NO! Tuesday, October 11 at 7 PM As the war in Vietnam raged, hundreds of thousands of young men opposed to an unjust war said “No!” to being drafted into the military, risking up to five years in federal prison. Their individual courage and collective nonviolent actions helped end a tragic war and the draft. The Boys Who Said NO! is the story of a mass movement of young people who chose conscience over killing. In person Q&A with Judith Ehrlich and Esta Soler, Founder of Futures Without Violence.

THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA: DANIEL ELLSBERG AND THE PENTAGON PAPERS Wednesday, October 12 at 7 PM In 1971, Pentagon strategist Daniel Ellsberg concludes that America’s role in the Vietnam war is based on decades of lies. Risking life in prison, he copies and leaks top-secret documents to The New York Times and The Washington Post, a daring act of conscience that leads directly to Watergate, President Nixon’s resignation and the end of the Vietnam War. Co-directed by Rick Goldsmith. In Person Q&A with Judith Ehrlich and, via Zoom, Daniel Ellsberg.
