V-Men Workshop

Men of all backgrounds have always been a part of V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. Panelists Harry Brod, sociology, anthropology and criminology; Michael Fleming, school of applied human sciences; Alan Heisterkamp, Center for Violence Prevention; and Mark Rowe-Barth, wellness and recreation services, explore the issues of violence against women and girls from a male perspective, addressing the root causes of the violence and the ways men can be active participants in ending it. Man-identified participants only. No registration is required.

Documentary: "Living Downstream"

The documentary "Living Downstream," based on the book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, will be shown. The film follows Steingraber during one pivotal year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. After a routine cancer screening, she receives worrying results and is thrust into a period of medical uncertainty. We begin two journeys with Steingraber: her private struggles with cancer and her public quest to bring attention to the urgent human rights issue of cancer prevention. The film also follows invisible toxins as they migrate to some of the most beautiful places in North America. We see how these chemicals enter our bodies and how, once inside, scientists believe they may be working to cause cancer. Kamyar Enshayan, Center for Energy and Environmental Education, will lead a discussion following the film.
