The Social Change Film Series

Join the Davis Center every month during the school year for a free film, discussion, and some thought-provoking content! This year, the Davis Center is working diligently to highlight a mainstream or independent film that speaks to issues across various dimensions of diversity, including but not limited to ideology, social identity, injustice, as well as prejudice and discrimination. We aim to give students and our community the opportunity to learn about social change through film – to thereby broaden or deepen our appreciation and understanding.
