Parents who want to help their college-bound teens remain aware and safe are invited to attend an advance showing of an award-winning documentary about sexual assault on college campuses. The film, The Hunting Ground, has been viewed and discussed by teens, parents and educators throughout the Chicagoland area. A special preview showing on Wednesday, July 17, is for parents and educators to help parents start a discussion with their teens. The teen presentation will take place on Wednesday, July 31. At that showing, there will be an opportunity for the students to discuss the film with a counselor present. Parents are also invited to attend the July 31 showing.

Parents, please join us on Wednesday, July 17, at 7 p.m. in the Ascension Pine Room, 601 Van Buren, Oak Park. Refreshments will be served. To RSVP by July 14 or for more information, please contact Roberta at

This film is appropriate for college-bound (junior/senior) and college-age students and their parents; it is not appropriate for children. It is sponsored by the Domestic Violence Outreach Ministries of local parishes.
