Film Screening, Music, and Q & A: “We Are Many”

September 21 @ 8:00 pm

$7 – $12

Join us for the U.S. premiere of We Are Many!

The Institute for Policy Studies is partnering with the We Are Many film for a unique live-streamed event marking the International Day of Peace. Support IPS by purchasing a ticket through our custom link and we will benefit from a share of ticket sale profits.

The movie tells the story behind the 2003 global anti-Iraq War protest — the largest demonstration in history — that helped prevent a U.S. war against Iran four years later and inspired the next generation of activists, including some of those who led Egypt’s popular ouster of the U.S.-backed dictator in the Arab Spring of 2011.

The film is a powerful tribute to movement building. As peaceful protests against racism continue to rise across the world, the film’s message resonates more deeply than ever.

Featuring a stellar cast including IPS Board members Danny Glover & Harry Belafonte as well as Noam Chomsky, Jeremy Corbyn, Colleen Kelly, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Medea Benjamin, and our very own Phyllis Bennis and IPS Associate Fellow Bill Fletcher — plus many more!

Watch the trailer here!

The night will feature exclusive music performances and a Q&A panel discussion including director Amir Amirani (also co-producer of Coup 53), cast members, and leaders from key activist organizations.
