Girl Rising Screening & Discussion - Group A

  • Burton Street Community Center (map)

Join us for a community screening of the Netflix film "Girl Rising".  

The movie follows nine girls from nine different countries who have to truly struggle to get their educations, and in the process, transform themselves, their families, and their communities. It is an amazing look at the power of education to change everything in the lives of girls as well as the power of girls to change the world. Michelle Obama worked on a follow-up film called We Will Rise.  There may be a few clips include from the newer version as well.

After the screening, facilitated dialogue will take place for the attendees.

*This movie is rated PG-13.  For this reason this screening is for Group A participants only.
