On Monday, September 21, 2015 at 12:30pm, SAFFRON Sexual Assault Centre Ltd, together with Information and Volunteer Centre for Strathcona County, will be screening an amazing new documentary entitled, “The Hunting Ground” at Galaxy Theatre in Sherwood Park. From the Academy Award-nominated filmmaking team behind THE INVISIBLE WAR, The Hunting Ground is a startling exposé of sexual assault on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families. We at SAFFRON know that this is also an issue at campuses in our community and nationwide. As part of the “I Believe You” campaign, we would like to use this opportunity to spread awareness of this issue and work to create social change. We understand the content of the film can be triggering but it is a crucial conversation that needs to be had in order to engage others to work towards preventing sexual violence. SAFFRON staff will be available for questions both before and after the screening, and will provide support to anyone that wishes to access it.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions. We look forward to seeing you at the event and making a difference in the lives of many.
