Martin Luther King Jr. Coexistence Dinner

Thu., January 19, 2017 at 6:30 PM
As a part of a service fellowship sponsored by the MK Gandhi Institute, the “Coexistence Dinner and Dialogue” aims to help college students break through pre-set barriers regarding spirituality and faith on campus. By engaging students from Nazareth College, St. John Fisher College, Rochester Institute of Technology, and University of Rochester within a supportive environment, students will gain deeper insights about the religious beliefs of others as well as their own through the use of contemplative discussion, art, and service.

Film Screening: Sold

Wed., January 25, 2017 at 6:00 PM
Hosted by Professor Maureen Barry and the Office of Multicultural Affairs & Diversity Programs. SOLD is a narrative, feature film adaptation of the globally acclaimed novel by Patricia McCormick. Based on true stories, SOLD, is the story of Lakshmi who journeys from a pastoral, rural village in Nepal to a gritty brothel/prison called Happiness House in Kolkata, India. Through one extraordinary girl’s story, SOLD illustrates the brutality of child trafficking, which affects millions of children around the globe every year. Globally the average age of a trafficked girl is thirteen, the same age as the girl in the film. SOLD is a call to action, and a testament to the power and resilience of the human spirit.We hope our film, SOLD, will inspire a global movement to address this crime domestically and internationally.
