On October 11th, The Ace Class is inviting the community to join them for a special screening of the Girl Rising documentary in celebration of Day of the Girl.
Created by a team of former journalists, Girl Rising tells the stories of nine girls from around the world who are affected by education – or lack thereof. Their stories are compelling, moving and emotional, and most importantly, shine a bright light on why we desperately need to invest in educating and empowering girls.
Girl Rising is revolutionary and is one of the most important films one will see in his or her lifetime because its purpose and meaning transcends way beyond the screen, but lends itself to a growing movement that all women and men should support – giving rise and a voice to girls.
Your ticket includes:
An interactive and inspiration-filled evening which will include impactful poetry from a spoken word artist, the on-site presence of charities aimed at empowering women, and delicious food and drink by a collection of local businesses. You will be engaged in thought-provoking discussions and build a deeper connection with those in your community.
A portion of ticket sales will support Big Brothers Big Sisters Calgary
Celebrate the Day of the Girl with us the best way possible – by ensuring girls all around the world can be full and equal participants in society.
Doors open at 5:30 PM. Programming will start at 6:15 PM.
