Thank you to everyone who came to the opening night of The Hunting Ground

hunting-ground-mo-theaterRagtag would like to thank everyone for coming to see The Hunting Ground at the Missouri Theatre last night as part of Sexual Assault Awareness month. The Q&A after the film with film subjects Kamilah Willingham (Harvard) and Sofie Karasek (Berkeley) via Skype was informative and empowering. A special thank you to University of Missouri journalism professor Katherine Reed for facilitating the Q&A with panelists Colleen Coble, director of Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, and Danica Wolf of the Relationship & Sexual Violence Prevention (RSVP) Center at the University of Missouri.

If you missed the opening night show, we are showing it at Ragtag through April 16.
