Viewing of the movie Precious in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month

In observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month 2019, we’re going to the movies!

Please join us in a viewing of the movie Precious by: Lee Daniels

Pregnant by her own father for the second time, 16-year-old Claireece “Precious” Jones (Gabourey Sidibe) can neither read nor write and suffers constant abuse at the hands of her vicious mother (Mo’Nique). Precious instinctively sees a chance to turn her life around when she is offered the opportunity to transfer to an alternative school. Under the patient, firm guidance of her new teacher, Ms. Rain (Paula Patton), Precious begins the journey from oppression to self-determination.  RATED R
