Session Description:

How do you know if the choices you make are helping? Join filmmaker, author and playwright Cheryl Foggo for an online screening of her film John Ware Reclaimed. Cheryl will introduce the film with a brief exploration of how the commitment of a small group of women on the University of Calgary campus played a role in getting the story to the screen. The streaming will be followed by a Question and Answer Period.
