It's A Girl | Film Screening | Surrey

Our latest film screening of "It's A Girl," took place in partnership with Kwantlen Polytechnic University at their Surrey campus at the Confrerence Centre. Turnout was great, the room was filled to capacity. Event included speakers and a Q&A discussion after the film. Many people who were already aware of the issue found the film to shocking as the stories were very emotional and almost seemed unreal. Others that came felt the issue needs to continuously addressed. The interaction after the film was great, something we plan to continue with in the future. Food and refreshments provided by Desi Chulla in Surrey.  Thank you everyone for coming out and supporting this event. See read more for more pics of the event or visit us on Facebook.

Kaurageous One | Spoken Word Artist

When I first heard "Kaurageous One," I cried, I had tears streaming down my face and couldn't stop. The second and third times I watched  I kept crying. Her words are so well spoken and share such heart wrenching stories on the issue of infanticide, captivating and tugging at your heart. We had her perform at our initial film screening of "It's A Girl," and official launch and there was not a dry eye in the house. Take a listen, a very talented young woman.
