The Bystander Moment at the Downtown Campus!
The Sociology Film Series (SFS), First Year Experience (FYE) and Mentors in Violence Prevention at MCC (MVP-MCC) present MVP co-founder, Dr. Jackson Katz's latest documentary, The Bystander Moment: Transforming Rape Culture at its Roots, as part of MCC's Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) programming in April. Both the Downtown Campus calendar of SAAM events and a flier for The Bystander Moment are attached.
"The #MeToo movement has shined much-needed light on the pervasiveness of sexual harassment and abuse and created unprecedented demand for gender violence prevention models that actually work. The Bystander Moment tells the story of one of the most prominent and proven of these models -- the innovative bystander approach developed by pioneering activist and writer Jackson Katz and his colleagues."

DATE: Wednesday, April 24, 2019
TIME: 2:30pm (view 50-minute film with discussion lead by MVP-MCC Leadership Team members to follow)

Pizza will be served. As always, the Sociology Film series is free and open to the public. Given the content of this film, no children will be allowed to attend. Information on how to get involved in MVP-MCC's violence prevention work will be available, too.
Please share the attached fliers with students and community partners, as we all work together to prevent harassment, bullying and violence against all of us in all of its forms? Thank you and hope to see you at one or more of our upcoming events!
