Cosponsored by the Dallas Peace & Justice Center
The First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival has returned to screening films in the sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff! We will continue screening films focusing on an important social justice issue once every quarter. We hope you'll leave inspired and ready to hit the road in your own quest for a better world.
The best way to make a difference in the world is to first learn how others have done so. Is there a film you'd love to see to inspire you? Perhaps you have that one movie that just recharges you before a social justice battle. If so, please share with us, and we'll see about putting it on our list of films to show at the UUCOC First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival.

Her enormous contributions have gone largely unrecognized.
