Filmmaker Patrice O’Neill, producer of the award winning PBS documentary “Not In Our Town,” will be in Charleston Nov. 4 to talk about creative, community-based approaches to intolerance.

O’Neill will present short films and features from www.NIOT.org, a new social networking site and tool set for people working to stop hate crimes and build inclusive communities.
Not In Our Town is focused on the stories of ordinary people who take action in the face of hate crimes, and the civic leaders, activists and school leaders who are examining the underlying tensions that can lead to the violent manifestations of hate. The ultimate goal of the project is to share knowledge and encourage community activity that will help create communities that are inclusive and safe for everyone.
You have two chances to catch the forum – from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Charleston Area Alliance and from 7 to 9 p.m. at the YWCA of Charleston.
