The Central Piedmont Collegiate Recovery Community invites you to attend a screening of “The The Anonymous PeopleAnonymous People.”

Central Campus, Overcash Center, Tate Hall

Panel Discussion to follow with:

  • Mary Ferreri – Founder of Emerald School of Excellence

Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum created by this silence has been filled by sensational mass media depictions of addiction that continue to perpetuate a lurid public 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 the citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, and public figures who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.

Attend a Free Screening of “Being Flynn” on Feb. 4

You’re invited to a FREE screening of “Being Flynn” in the Halton Theater on Feb. 4 at 7 p.m.

Being Flynn

Being Flynn

The movie is based on the memoir, “Being Flynn” by Nick Flynn, a book that tells the story of the trajectory that led Nick and his father – a self-proclaimed poet and con man doing time in federal prison – onto the streets, into a shelter and finally to each other. The movie follows the book, which is about no less than permanence of familial relations. A strangely poignant meditation on the debt sons owe their fathers, even bad fathers, even fathers that weren’t around.
CPCC faculty members are welcome to invite their students.
