Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.

Learn about our newest sister city, Rania, Iraqi Kurdistan from Michele Naar-Obed, co-founder of the Duluth-Rania Friendship Exchange and co-chair of the Rania Sister City committee. Michele will provide a description and the context of the current situation of the Kurdish people. She will discuss how our sister city relationship can help us build on how the Duluth community would be able to make a difference through efforts like a library project, delegation exchanges through the sister city program, and people to people relationship building. 

A short video will be shown. Michele plans to return to Kurdistan in January 2017. 

There will be an opportunity to purchase prints and notecards from Anne Labovitz's Sister City Artwork Collection and to make a donation toward the Rania Library.
