Liberal Alphabet Series Is Back with An Exclusive Screening on November 9!

In an effort to support open spaces for discussion and to promote dialogue, the German NGO Friedrich Nauman Foundation for Freedom has recently launched an annual event promoting its values of democratic political liberalism. Entitled, “The Liberal Alphabet Series,” this initiative establishes an open safe space for rigorous and methodological debates revolving around social and political issues from everyday life.

With a letter of the alphabet systematically introducing each new event, the series now pronounces its nineteenth letter “S” bringing you an exciting exclusive screening of their movie “Seeking Freedom, Women Leading Protests”.

The movie focuses on the role of females who were actively involved in protests in Belarus, Hong Kong, Venezuela, and Lebanon, all of whom share similar experiences and obstacles in different political settings.

Featured in the film is independent Lebanese journalist and social activist Luna Safwan, whose strong voice was a leading one in Lebanon’s protests. Check out the following snippet to listen to Luna addressing her experience as a woman advocating for political and social change.

The screening will take place on November 9 from 6 to 8 PM at Union Marks in Bourj Hammoud. It will be followed by a dynamic Q&A moderated by political activist Verena El Amil who will be joined by Safwan among other female activists through Zoom. Reserve your spot through this link and enjoy free drinks and bites as you nourish your mind with thorough conversations.

For those who can’t make it, the event will be streamed live on Facebook! Make sure to visit FNF’s page for more information.

This is a much-needed initiative to help shed light on modern-day women superheroes and advocate for active political conversations especially in the country of Lebanon!
Hope to see you there, participating in positive change!
