Living Library, Sponsored by American Democracy Project

The Living Library initiative seeks out individuals from our community and brings them together to share their experiences in an intimate conversation aimed at breaking down barriers and stereotypes to promote a more cohesive community.

 

Movie Night, Sponsored by Women & Gender Studies

Wednesday, February 24

 

At this digital event, we will be watching Intersexion, a documentary that features dozens of intersex people, and seeks to demystify the shame and secrecy often surrounding intersex lives. Interviewing intersex people around the world, the film explores how they "navigate their way through childhood, adolescence, relationships and adulthood, when they don’t fit the binary model of a solely male and female world." After viewing the 50 minute film, we will open up for a discussion. Join here.

 

Films for Peace, Sponsored by American Democracy Projects

Thursday, February 25

 

Featuring FaceKC, which stands for Filmmakers Artists & Creatives for Empowerment Kansas City, this presentation will discuss community filmmaking and its application to community service and civic engagement.
