2018-10-05 2018-10-05 America/New_York Heroine: This Is Us

Join us Friday, October 5, 2018, for the kickoff of Resilience: Healing What Ails Us Through Strength, Tenacity & Fellowship with a screening of the Sundance and Academy Award-nominated film, "Heroin(e)".  

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited. To reserve your ticket, visit here.

The Film.

This 39-minute documentary follows the brave work of three women in Huntington, WV, all passionate about ending the label of their city being named "ground zero" of the opioid epidemic in the U.S.  These women, with strength, determination and bravery, are making a difference in the lives of their community through ministry, through compassion within the judicial system, and with educated and informed law enforcement.  

The Conversation.

Then, join us for a conversation where we ask ourselves, "Is This Us?" and explore how, as a community, we can tackle these issues directly using wellness, education, compassion, information and resources.

The Schedule.

4:30PM-5:15PM Opening Reception College Center Lounge
5:15PM-6:30PM Film Screening Zimmer Theatre
6:30PM-7:30PM Community Conversation Zimmer Theatre

The Music.

Special Thanks.
