We Shall Not Die Now – December 3rd, 7pm

Join director Ashton Gleckman and Dr. Michael Berenbaum (Holocaust Historian, Curator at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum) for the Los Angeles premiere of “We Shall Not Die Now,” a documentary film chronicling the Holocaust. Seventy-five years after the conclusion of the war, the film explores not only the horrific human tragedy and what we can learn from it, but also the resilience of those that rebuilt their lives in spite of the unimaginable. Told by the survivors and liberators who experienced it first hand such as Cantor Moshe Taube (number twenty-two on Schindler’s List) and Ben Ferencz (concentration camp liberator and last living prosecutor of the Nuremberg trials), We Shall Not Die Now is a journey of despair, hope, and the triumph of the human spirit through history’s darkest hour. Following the event, there will be a Q&A discussion with Ashton and Dr. Berenbaum.

WHAT CAN EVERYDAY ANGELENOS DO ABOUT HOMELESSNESS-October 22nd, 7:30pm

A Zócalo/UCLA Downtown Event
Moderated by Carla Hall, Editorial Board Member, Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles leaders have developed billion-dollar plans to boost services and build housing for the homeless. But such plans are now stuck in political quicksand, with neighborhood activists blocking shelters and new housing. Meanwhile, living in a city with a homelessness emergency is an everyday struggle, and there is no guidebook to dealing with sidewalk squalor or witnessing human suffering on your street. What’s the best way for Angelenos to engage with our homeless neighbors? What can we contribute to make a real difference in their lives? And who, if anyone, should we call when we perceive a threat, or see someone in crisis? UCLA sociologist Randall Kuhn, Social Venture Partners Los Angeles executive director Christine Margiotta, executive director of the California Policy Lab at UCLA Janey Rountree, and Chris Ko, Managing Director of Homelessness and Strategic Initiatives at United Way of Greater Los Angeles, visit Zócalo to discuss how everyday Angelenos can best respond to the challenges of homelessness.
