Documentary Screening: African Grandmothers Tribunal A Film by the Stephen Lewis Foundation

The grandmothers of Africa have watched their own children — an entire generation of young adults — die of AIDS. As a result, grandmothers have become the primary caregivers for millions of orphaned grandchildren. This moving new documentary from the Stephen Lewis Foundation shines a light on the urgent need to provide better protection for the human rights of African grandmothers. They are subject to high rates of violence, an epidemic of property grabbing, extreme poverty, and woefully inadequate healthcare.

Join us and Healy Thompson from the Stephen Lewis Foundation afterwards for a discussion on the topic.
