NOTE: This is the rescheduled date for the LUNAFEST event originally scheduled for April 29, 2020.
Come and enjoy seven short films by and about women while supporting the Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute aka "Peacebuilding."
When terrible things happen, our peace is stolen from us. Most people want to build peace back into their lives. "Peacebuilding" teaches positive, productive alternatives to revenge to build peace back into our lives and communities. Instigated in 2010, we now have over 3400 Peacebuilding graduates. 80% of our graduates are women, 33% are from communities of color, and the LGBTQ community is well represented. 50% of our trainees apply for scholarship assistance to attend our trainings. LUNAFEST: Minneapolis raises funds for Peacebuilding’s Scholarship Fund to maximize racial and economic diversity at all our community trainings and events. Attending LUNAFEST inspires and supports our vision of making Minnesota the peacebuilding power state for all!
Before the films and during intermission, we’ll sell $5 raffle tickets for a chance to win gift baskets filled with gift cards, service vouchers, and cool merchandise worth over $1,000. Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted to purchase raffle tickets.
After the films, those who purchased VIP tickets are welcome to join us for the After Party across the street at the Riverview Café!
