Whose Streets Documentary Screening

Join the Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion, Pikes Peak Womxn for Liberation, and the Empowerment Solidarity Network for a free screening of the documentary "Whose Streets?" followed by facilitated community discussion lead by Dr. Stephany Rose, Department Chair of Women's and Ethnic Studies at UCCS. 

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 @ 7PM - University Center room 303 on UCCS campus. 

"Whose Streets?" is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. "Whose Streets?" is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.
