April 28, 2010
For our friends and supporters in the Boston area:

Project Director Ben Achtenberg will be making a presentation on [2]The Refuge
Media Project, and showing some clips from our forthcoming [3]video
documentary, at the Jamaica Plain Forum on Friday evening, May 14, 2010, from
7:00 to 9:00pm. It will be great if you can join us. The Forum will be at the
First Church in Jamaica Plain at 6 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
([4]see map).

The program, entitled [5]Addressing Torture at Home and Abroad: Fighting to
Preserve Human Dignity, will also feature Boston College Professor Brinton
Lykes, talking about her work in Guatemala and across borders. Brinton is a
community cultural psychologist, and is the Associate Director of BC’s
[6]Center for Human Rights and International Justice.
[7]The Jamaica Plain Forum has been a highly successful effort to facilitate
community discussion on a variety of local, national and international issues
through film screenings, speakers, and other events. Its founders are hoping to
turn it into a national movement, offering guidance and resources to
communities everywhere through its [8]Forum Organizing Project. If interested,
download the Project’s free [9]Forum Organizing Guide.
