Seattle to Uganda: A Journey of Hope and Health

Seattle Channel’s Emmy-award winning Community Stories follows a group of local women as they embark on a heartwarming journey to Aminocira, a small village in Northern Uganda. In the fall of 2010, Seattle resident Maureen Brotherton invited 10 women to join her to visit the women in Aminocira. Seattle documentary filmmaker Penny LeGate followed along as women from opposite sides of the globe forged a partnership that continues to inspire awareness, social change, health opportunities and hope for a better future.
Attend a free, public screening of the half-hour documentary, 4 p.m., Sunday, April 15, at Seattle University’s Wyckoff Auditorium in the Bannan Engineering Building. Brotherton, LeGate and several of the women will reunite for the preview and a post-screening talk. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 733-9764.Great Citizenship. It’s a Good Thing
