Northern Lights, winner of the Camera d’Or for Best First Feature at the Cannes International Film Festival and many other prizes around the world, is a classic American independent film. Against a backdrop of a bitter winter on the Dakota prairie and the equally brutal economic forces of 1915, a story unfolds which pits small Midwestern farmers against “the powers that be” - bankers, railroad men, big grain dealers and an entrenched political machine. Based on the fictional diary of farmer Ray Sorenson, Northern Lights chronicles the struggle of these small farmers as they fight to save their farms, their families and their very way of life. By banding together in a grassroots movement - the little known Nonpartisan League - Ray and his cohorts confront great odds and Ray’s own personal doubts and dilemmas in his love for the beautiful Inga.

Discrimination is NOT a North Dakota Value
SB 2279 would amend the ND Human Rights Act and the ND Fair Housing Act to include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected from workplace and housing discrimination throughout our state. This important legislation passed the ND Senate on February 17, 2015, the first time since 2009. We need your help to support NDHRC's Legislative Advocacy Team to advance SB 2279 in the ND House.
This event is hosted by: Karen Stoker, Rep. Joshua Bosche & Zachary Packineau, Celeste Carlson & Amber Carlson Allebach, Bernie Erickson & Dr. David Hamilton, Cindy Roholt & Lee Clarens, Dr. Kristen Benson
