WUSA's equity services (Women's Centre, Glow, and RAISE) are coming together to host a screening of "The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson" during International Women's Week.
Filmmakers re-examine the 1992 death of transgender legend Marsha P. Johnson, who was found floating in the Hudson River. Originally ruled a suicide, many in the community believe she was murdered.
This event will have a limited in-person screening and an online screening. Following the screening, there will be discussion on the documentary.
The in-person event will be held in DC 1350, with a max capacity of 35 attendees. This event will require your green checkmark from Campus Check-In and wearing masks will be mandatory. There is no food permitted during this event.
The online event will be held on Zoom. The event link will be emailed to you 2 hours prior to the event time.
Registration for the event will close 3 hours prior to the start of the event.
