Chester County Fund for Women and Girls and Crime Victims’ Center of Chester County Co-Host Film Screening and Panel Discussion of The Hunting Ground

Join Chester County Fund for Women and Girls, the Crime Victims’ Center of Chester County and Colonial Theatre during Sexual Assault Awareness Month for a free documentary film screening of The Hunting Ground from 7:00-9:30 pm on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, PA. Join us after the screening for a thoughtful and informative panel discussion, with the goal of raising awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses and educating the community about preventative measures for combatting sexual violence.

Using expert insight, first-person testimonies and staggering statistics, The Hunting Ground exposes rape culture on college campuses through the eyes of young victims turned advocates. The documentary addresses the failures of college administrations to address the problem of sexual assault, sexual violence and the ongoing harassment survivors face in their pursuit of justice.

 

Tickets are free, although donations to the presenting organizations are encouraged. Reserve your seat at www.thecolonialtheatre.com.
