girl-risingEducate Girls, Change the World: SPECIAL SCREENING of the documentary Girl Rising

When: January 28th, 7:00 – 9:00 PM

Where: First Free Methodist Church, 3200 3rd Ave. W.

As a special event, the Center for Scholarship and Faculty Development will be partnering with Global Washington and Seattle’s First Free Methodist Church to screen Girl Rising. This 2013 documentary, directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Robbins, tells the stories of nine extraordinary girls from nine countries who have fought for their right to education. During our October 2013 Day of Common Learning, we held a showing of the film to a packed out sanctuary with great enthusiasm. We are thrilled to host another showing of the film to start off 2014.

If you are planning on attending the showing, Global Washington would like interested community members and students to REGISTER HERE so that they can follow up for feedback on the film and provide ideas for further engagement with these issues.
