See ‘The Invisible War’ documentary at Swedish/Issaquah on Monday
June 8, 2013
NEW — 6 a.m. June 8, 2013
The documentary “The Invisible War,” which brings to light the epidemic of sexual assault within the U.S. armed forces, can be seen June 10 at Swedish/Issaquah.
A free screening of the movie will be at 7:30 p.m. at the hospital at 751 N.E. Blakely Drive, according to a press release from the Washington State Chapter International Association of Forensic Nurses.
The aim is to start a respectful conversation about sexual assault, institutional power, trauma, healing and the steps necessary to effect widespread, systemic change in the way the U.S. military prevents, responds to and prosecutes military sexual assault.
After the movie, there will be a discussion period led by Heather Van Mill GS-12, DAFC, the sexual assault response coordinator from Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
The themes and issues uncovered by “The Invisible War” may be emotionally difficult, particularly for survivors of military sexual trauma.
Seating is limited, so RSVP here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
