Mayor Ed Lee and other top city officials are reeling from recent accusations of corruption.

S 17, Thursday, 7:30pm – 9:30pm, Laura Nader: What the Rest Think of the West: Since 600AD
Berkeley Hillside Club
2286 Cedar St.
$12 advance tickets: 800-838-3006 or independent bookstores, $15 door, KPFA benefit.
Over the past few centuries, as Western civilization has enjoyed an expanding geographic domain, Westerners have observed other cultures rarely, and then usually with scant interest in what they saw in us. What the Rest Think of the West, unprecedented in its scope, at last provides a rich historical look through the eyes of observant outsiders as they survey and scrutinize the politics, science, technology, religion, family practices, and gender roles of civilizations not their own.

S 18, Friday, 6:00pm, Mission Nightwalk
Start:: St. John’s
15th Street and Julian (2 blocks from 16th Street BART)
Twice each month faith communities in the Mission District walk the street where violence has occurred. Along the way, we stop to listen to the stories of our neighbors, sometimes talk with family and friends of those killed.
In the Nightwalks, we hope to bring not only comfort, but also a challenge — to ourselves, our neighbors, and our City — to uproot the causes of that violence, whether it is done by individuals, gangs, or law enforcement.
S 18, Friday, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Sensible Cinema Film: Broke On All Sides
Unitarian Universalist Center

The film Broken On All Sides is a compelling documentary by Matthew Pillischer addressing the racial inequalities within our criminal justice system. It dissects the War On Drugs and “tough on crime” movement illustrating how the emerging Occupy Movement offers hope for change and explores possible reforms and solutions to ending Mass Incarceration.
