  Hello Folks,

This is Nate Stell with Amnesty International Group 133 in Somerville.  We
are hosting a free human rights film series this fall, with the goal to
provide opportunities for local residents to learn more about some of
today's most pressing and relevant human rights issues.  Each film will also
include a facilitated discussion and outlets for action.  Please feel free
to email or call me any time at 978-273-8791 if you have any questions about
the film series. Hope to see you there!
