Join us for a community viewing of the inspiring documentary, "The White Helmets." The Netflix short film, which recently won Best Documentary at the 89th Academy Awards, follows the daily operations of a group of volunteer rescue workers of the Syrian Civil Defense, also known as the White Helmets.

We will be joined by Dr. Jaber Hassan, a local Maryville doctor and member of the Syrian-American Medical Society (SAMS) who has traveled on several medical missions to Syria, including a trip to the war-torn city of Aleppo. Yassin Terou, owner of Yassin's Falefel House, will also join us and share his experiences as a Syrian refugee and entrepreneur living in Knoxville.

This event is free and open to the public. To help us best prepare, please reserve your free ticket here:
