PBS Film Showing – Pushing the Elephant

Don’t miss the new PBS film showing of “Pushing the Elephant”, a powerful film about the 1990’s civil war that came to Rose Mapendo’s Congolese village.  Her husband was mercilessly killed and she was separated from her 5 yr old daughter.  With her remaining 9 children, she eventually resettled in Phoenix, AZ.  Find out how she reunited with her lost daughter a decade later, pieced together her shattered family and found forgiveness while devoting her life to helping other victims.  It will be a life-changing experience for the viewers.

CPCC employees will get one professional development credit hour for attending this event sponsored by your Library, Student Life, Family Resources Center, and The Diversity Committee.
