Melissa Hosts “Beyond Bullets” Media Arts Workshop, Tomorrow

Melissa will host the second in a series of media arts workshops with Downtown Community Television (DCTV) in East Harlem on Friday, based around DCTV’s Beyond Bullets documentary. These workshops, which will be held at local youth organizations, help facilitate discussions on gun violence in the community. The workshops include a short screening of the film and a discussion that covers topics ranging from gun laws, police-community relations and community solutions for violence. The first workshop in this series was held on Thursday at Harlem RBI and a third workshop will take place at Peace on the Street in East Harlem. There is also plans for one in the Mott Haven area in the coming weeks. We hope to see you there!

FREE Screening Of “A Place at the Table” on Thursday

The NYC Food Policy Center, Hunter’s Graduate Student Nutrition Club and the NYC Coalition Against Hunger will be hosting a FREE screening of A Place at the Table, a new groundbreaking film on hunger in America, on Thursday, May 9th  from 2 to 4 PM at the CUNY School of Public Health.

From the people that brought us An Inconvenient Truth, The Help, Food Inc. and Waiting for Superman, this documentary examines the issue of hunger in America. It is in our best interest that we make healthy food available and affordable because right now we are facing serious economic, social and cultural implications for our nation. One in four children in the United States do not know where their next meal is coming from.
