LIGLFF presents Equality U
Equality U
(Dave OBrien, USA, 2008, 91 min)

Follows a group of 33 young activists on the Soulforce Equality Ride, a first of its kind, two-month, cross-country tour to confront antigay discrimination policies at 19 conservative religious and military colleges. It is a human story of a group of young people struggling to stand up for what they believe is right. Against the backdrop of the Equality Ride, the film focuses on seven of the Equality Riders and two courageous students they encounter along their journey. The Riders, led by Jacob Reitan and Haven Herrin, must come to terms with their new role as young activists, deal with internal conflict within the group, and face the daily onslaught from administrators that dont want them on their campuses. At each stop, the Riders exercise relentless non-violent resistance and often face arrest for trespassing. They must confront the controversial question: "Do schools ultimately have the right to decide who does and doesn't belong?" Incorporating verit footage, interviews, and personal video journals recorded by the six central Riders themselves, Equality U focuses on the personal stories of our lead characters and the journeys they take during this foray into activism. Winner Outstanding Emerging Talent Award at Outfest LA Film Festival for Director Dave OBrien  

Following the screening there will be a Pizza Party in the Sky Cafe sponsored by Long Island Community Fellowship, free to all ticket holders.
