Audrie and Daisy: Sexual Assault, Bullying and Social Media

Wed, 03/01/2017 - 6:00pm

Join us for a screening of Audrie and Daisy, followed by a panel discussion with experts who deal with issues of sexual assault within our community every day.

Audrie and Daisy is an urgent real-life drama that examines the ripple effects on families, friends, schools and communities when two underage young women find that sexual assault crimes against them have been caught on camera. From acclaimed filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, Audrie and Daisy — which made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival — takes a hard look at American's teenagers who are coming of age in this new world of social media bullying, spun wildly out of control.

The discussion panel will include Tashmica Torok from the Firecracker Foundation, Detective Sam Miller from the Michigan State University (MSU) Police Department, Sgt. Jeff Thomas from the East Lansing Police Department, Harriet McTigue from the Sexual Assault Program at MSU, and Kimberly Hack from End Violent Encounters (EVE).
