Join us for January’s Community Cinema film, “A Path Appears.”
“A Path Appears” goes to the USA, Colombia, Haiti, and Kenya to reveal the incredible adversity faced every day by millions of women and girls, while also presenting glimpses of hope and change. From the team that brought you the groundbreaking Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide, this series begins with the stories of young women in America forced into a life of prostitution and the innovative programs that have evolved to achieve remarkable results in empowering their lives.
We’ll watch the first part of the series, which focuses on sex trafficking in Nashville, Chicago, and Boston.
Afterwards, we will discuss how sex trafficking affects our metro and region with community partners. The screening is free, but please RSVP here.
Please note: The program and film start at 11 a.m., so please plan to arrive at least a few minutes early.
