FREE MARCH TO THE POLLS EVENT: OPEN TO ALL; BRING YOUR FRIENDS.
March to the Polls, in its effort to get out the vote, advocate for social justice and create a greater awareness of women’s rights, is joining with Unforgotten Butterflies, a group that devotes itself to women’s rights, particularly focusing on sexual abuse, violence and sex trafficking, is holding a Women’s Rights Event that includes a free screening of “Spirits Homecoming”, an award-winning film about “Comfort Women” during World War II, a live powerful Korean traditional dance performed right before the screening, an exhibition of survivors' 10 paintings, petition signing and a Girl Peace Statue live demonstration.
The Event is being held on the “3rd Annual International Memorial Day for "Comfort Women" in Dallas, to honor and remember all "Comfort Women" and all victims of sexual violence and abuse.
The movie’s theme, although focusing on sexual abuse and enslavement of women during World War II, is timely to abuses, violence and sexual trafficking suffered by women today in all parts of the world, including here in the United States.
The March to the Polls and Unforgotten Butterflies Event is held at Temple Emanu-El’s Tobian Auditorium, 8500 Hillcrest Avenue, on Wednesday, August 14th from 5:30PM to 8:30PM. Doors open at 5:00PM. Light Refreshments will be provided.
