The CMEP guide is meant to encourage tangible next steps your community can take as we continue to work for a just and sustainable resolution to the conflict in Israel-Palestine. Depending on date and location, a staff person from Just Vision might be able to join your screening either via video or in person. The documentary is approximately 1 hr and 15 mins.
