**Media Advisory** Hastings to Host Documentary Film Screening of The List
Congressman Alcee L. Hastings (D-FL) will host a Film Screening of the documentary The List with Kirk Johnson, founder of the List Project, and film director Beth Murphy. Beginning in 2007, Kirk, a former employee of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) mission in Iraq, began keeping track of the names of U.S.-affiliated Iraqis he met that were in need of Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs). Since then, he has worked tirelessly to bring greater attention to the plight of our Iraqi allies who remain in harm’s way, and has succeeded in resettling nearly 1,500 Iraqis who fled their country out of fear or violence. The screening will take place on Wednesday, November 20, 2013, at 4:00 PM in room 2168 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
