Film and Discussion
Join in on this public screening of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival award winning film "Fruitvale Station." The film is a compelling and moving account of the last day in the life of Oscar Grant who was unjustifiably killed by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit in San Francisco) police in 2008. The Chief of BART police will discuss the film afterwards. This is an unprecedented opportunity to hear from an authority who has the responsibility to make sure a tragedy like this doesn't happen again in the BART system. Check back to this site for more details coming soon.
