You’re Invited to a Film Screening on Oct. 2

The Collegiate Recovery Community will host a screening of “The Anonymous People” on October 2, 2014 from 2 until 4:30 p.m.  The event will take place on Central Campus in the Elizabeth Classroom Building, Room 1106.  A The Anonymous Peopledescription of the movie is below:

“The Anonymous People” is a documentary film about the more than 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging. Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.  The moving story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected officials, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.

After the movie a community leader in the recovery movement will lead a discussion of how to advocate while maintaining anonymity.

This event is open to all CPCC students, faculty and employees, especially those who consider themselves to be an advocate for people in recovery.
