It was great seeing everyone at Ally or Accomplice last month! This meeting we will be screening Pariah (2011), a coming-of-age film that tells the story of Alike, a seventeen-year-old working though heartbreak, family turmoil and learning to express her identity as a lesbian. Directed by Dee Rees, this semi-autobiographical film enjoyed massive success at Sundance Film Festival and was awarded the Excellence in Cinematography Award in 2011.
Along with a light dinner, we will be providing popcorn to snack on during the film! Following the screening we will have discussion.
Resisting Oppression and Reclaiming Spirituality (ROARS) is a student-led peer support group that provides a safe(r) space for self-identified women, trans, Two-Spirit, and gender non-binary/non-conforming people to discuss, critically analyze, and take action on issues of sexism, misogyny, racism, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, xenophobia, ageism, ableism, classism, White supremacy, colonialism, and settler colonialism, in relation to our lived experiences within religious institutions and spiritual journeys.
This is a space to examine the impact of oppressive -isms and
reclaim y/our spirituality.
Free event! Wheelchair accessible building and room. Accessible, single-user, all-gender washroom located on the same floor as the event room. Light dinner including vegan & gluten-free options.
