MOVIE NIGHT & DISCUSSION EVENT AT CONCORD UNIVERSITY

FEATURING ‘THE HUNTING GROUND’


ATHENS, W.Va. – In observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) Concord University is holding a Movie Night & Discussion on Thursday, April 11 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Room 237 of Marsh Hall (Administration Building). The movie being shown and discussed is the critically acclaimed film, “The Hunting Ground.”

The event is being sponsored by the Family Refuge Center and the Concord University Sexual Assault Response Team.
           
Terri Philpott, chair of the Sexual Assault Response Team at CU, explains the significance of the upcoming Movie Night & Discussion.
           
“This is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the film tells the true stories of survivors who were sexually assaulted on U.S. campuses,” she said.
           
Philpott said that along with sharing the victims’ stories the film also tells how their experiences impacted their families.
           
The general public is invited to join the campus community in attending the event at no charge. For additional information please contact Terri Philpott at tphilpott@concord.edu or 304-384-5282.
