On Tuesday, October 24 MUUF hosted a free screening of the intimate and epic documentary that goes behind the scenes of this historic civil rights struggle. This is a riveting ride alongside Evan Wolfson, the man known as architect of the same-sex marriage movement, Maine’s own civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto, and their key colleagues as they wage their climactic battle before the United States Supreme Court, providing fresh perspective on the movement's history along the way. This is a primer for social change, and an inspirational tale of how people can actually make a difference.
The screening was followed by a conversation with MUUF minister Rev. Erika Hewitt and pioneering Maine LGBTQ activist Dale McCormick, former state Legislator, State Treasurer, and Director of the Maine State Housing Authority.
