Help end the silence with a special screening of HBO’s The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo.

Laurel Marks, in collaboration with The Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains, presents a screening of the HBO Documentary The Greatest Silence: Rape in the Congo.

When: Sunday, April 26, 2009 from 7 to 9 PM.

Where: Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains, 246 South Church Street, Grass Valley, California

Director Lisa Jackson delves into the psychological dark roots of this ten-year war in the Congo. Sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo affects not only the women and girls, but also tears apart families and communities.

 Since the release of the film, dozens of countries have screened the documentary and have raised awareness, support, and hope for the women victims of this brutal war.

All proceeds of this screening will be donated to support Women for Women International’s programs in the Congo.

Please share this with friend and join Laurel and the Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains to help break the silence.

Please call (530) 274-1547 for more information.
