I’m super excited to be a community partner this year on a film screening at DOXA, a major documentary film festival in Vancouver. This year events and screenings run from May 3 to 12 and there’s a whole section on films around women’s rights issues (as well as queer issues, race and power, and other activism/social justice categories). The screening I’m partnering on is Anne Braden: Southern Patriot, by Anne Lewis and Mimi Pickering. It focuses on the life and legacy of Anne Braden, a prominent activist on issues of race and class throughout the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War and South African apartheid. Here’s a trailer:
So I have two tickets to give away to the screening of Anne Braden on Tuesday, May 7 at 6:00 p.m. at the Cinematheque (1131 Howe Street).
Here’s what you have to to do enter:

I’ll randomly pick a winner at the end of next Tuesday, April 30 to get the set of two tickets. Please make sure if you’re entering the context that you are around the Lower Mainland and available to attend the screening.
