7:00 PM - 9:00 PMSanctuary

No charge, but we will ask for donations for Combatants for Peace. 

Lemon Tree Group and J Street Boulder present Disturbing the Peace, a powerful film that follows the transformational journey of a group of Palestinians and Israelis, former enemy combatants, as they put down their arms and create Combatants for Peace, an organization promoting hope, nonviolence and peace.  

DISTURBING THE PEACE IS ABOUT PEOPLE BORN INTO CONFLICT, SWORN TO BE ENEMIES, WHO CHALLENGED THEIR FATE. THE FILM FOLLOWS EVERYDAY PEOPLE WHO TOOK EXTRAORDINARY ACTIONS BY STANDING FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVE IN, JUST LIKE THOSE WHO CAME BEFORE THEM – MARTIN LUTHER KING JR., ROSA PARKS, GANDHI, NELSON MANDELA AND MANY OTHERS WHOSE NAMES WE DON’T KNOW. THE MOVIE CHALLENGES ALL OF US – TO UNDERSTAND THE NARRATIVES WE LIVE WITHIN, TO LOOK AT OUR CURRENT ROLES IN OUR SOCIETIES, AND TO DECIDE WHAT ROLE WE ARE GOING TO PLAY IN CREATING A MORE HUMANE WORLD, FOR ALL. AND IT STARTS WITH OUR WILLINGNESS TO DISTURB THE PEACE.
