About this Event

The IMPACTS Speakers Series Presents: Because We Are Girls

Join us for a free film screening of locally made documentary "Because We Are Girls" by Director Baljit Sangra.

A conservative Indo-Canadian family in small-town British Columbia must come to terms with a devastating secret: three sisters were sexually abused by an older relative beginning in their childhood years. After remaining silent for nearly two and a half decades, the sisters finally decide to come forward—not only to protect other young relatives, but to set an example for their daughters as well.

Following the film, a panel discussion featuring members of the local community will commence. Conversation will circle issues around gender inequality, inter-generational trauma, and lack of access/discussion around mental health.

Please register for information on refreshments. Hope to see you at this event!
