A small-group discussion is planned after the film to review material from the film with food and drinks provided by AAUW. Good will be first come, first served.

If you are a student in Intro to Education, attending this event counts as professional development. The Cocoon will have an advocate on-site due to the difficult nature of the film.

Date: November 15
Time: 5 - 8 p.m.
Location: 113 Olscamp
