The Boys Who Said No Sneak Preview and Fundraiser


Thursday, December 12 2019 - 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Center on Halsted (3656 N. Halsted St.)

PLEASE JOIN US for a special preview of the nearly finished documentary film


The work-in-progress story of the men who resisted the draft and those who supported them. Nearly 60 years ago, against the background of the quiet conformity of the 1950s, in the face of a seemingly senseless war in a country they had never heard of, a small group of young men refused to register or serve in the U.S. Army. As we confront the resurgence of militarism, bigotry and nativism today, their story reminds us of what has always been best in our history – the fight against tyranny and hatred – and reminds us of what is possible when we act.
