Apkon and Hale will also lead a workshop on Sunday, Feb. 11, at Wright Memorial Public Library, that builds upon the film and challenges participants to see the importance of stepping up and standing for the world they want to create. Both events are free and open to the public. Registration is required for the workshop at www.wrightlibrary.org/peace or by calling the Library at 937-294-7171.
