Mural Art as a Catalyst for Social Change -Tony Heriza (AFSC director Educational Outreach) will show his documentary Concrete, Steel and Paint, which explores the way that mural painting provided a space for prisoners and victims of violence to come together for healing in a Philadelphia prison. Says a participant in the process, "There's something about creating beauty that reaches people and that in the end gives us hope that things can change..."  Winner of the Best Short Documentary award at the Peace on Earth Film Festival. Conversation will focus on restorative justice vs retributive justice" and "forgiveness and healing vs vengeance."  This program is presented in collaboration with our WAM partner Clarkston Community Center.
