The Hunting Ground, Film Screening
Thursday, October 15, 7:00 – 9:00 pm, Martin Meyer Sanctuary
Save the date!
The persistence of sexual assault on college campuses is a fundamental failure of civil society and this documentary is an indictment of our country's learning institutions' inability to address the problem. The Hunting Ground serves as a companion peace to Director Kirby Dick and Producer Amy Zierin's earlier documentary, The Invisible War, and zeroes in on the same crime: rape.
After the screening, there will be a Q&A session with Amalia Bob-Waksberg, Outreach Coordinator at Shalom Bayit.
