FindingDawn1

Free screening of the film “Finding Dawn.”

This is an invitation to a FREE evening of film and discussion in recognition of the National 16 days of activism against gender violence from Nov 25-Dec 10.

On Wednesday December 4th, Chimo Community Services, the Canadian Federation of University Women Richmond, and the Richmond Women’s Resource Centre are co-hosting the film screening of “Finding Dawn.”

This film is about the families of missing and murdered women in the Downtown Eastside (DTES) and is described as “a beautifully painful film leaving us not with a frustrating end to a series of unsolved and unending violent mysteries but with the hope that community building and healing can bring.”

We are pleased to have two special Guest Speakers who will comment on what the film means to them and to the organizations they represent.

Cherry Smiley is from Indigenous Women Against the Sex Industry (IWASI) and Chris McDowell is from Remember Our Sisters Everywhere (ROSE), a project of the Richmond Women’s Resource Centre.

Details are as follows:

Date: Wednesday December 4, 2013

Location: Fisher Auditorium, Richmond Hospital (corner of Gilbert and Westminster Hwy)

Agenda:
6.30-7.00 Welcome and refreshments
7.00-8.20 Film Screening
8.20-9.00 Guest Speakers comments and Q&A

Free parking in the gravel lot (enter from Westminster Highway). We hope you can join us.
