UNO to Host “Invisible Children” Screening March 26
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will screen the documentary “Invisible Children” at noon Thursday, March 26, in the Milo Bail Student Center Nebraska Room.
The “Invisible Children: Rough Cut” film exposes the effects of a 20-year war on the children of Northern Uganda. Children there live in fear of abduction by rebel soldiers and many are forced to fight as part of a violent army.
The Invisible Children, Inc. non-profit was formed in 2004. The organization is dedicated to providing financial resources to invisible children by documenting their true, untold stories in a creative and relevant way, resulting in positive change.
The goal of the Invisible Children movement is to empower the individual viewer to become a part of the story, and be “the change they wish to see in the world” though action.
Faculty and staff with previous experience in Invisible Children initiatives will be present to answer questions and provide further information on the Invisible Children movement.
Admission to the event is free for all who wish to attend (including UNO students, staff, faculty and all community), and refreshments will also be provided free of charge.
Contact Jared Spence at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 203-1989 for more information.
UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
