Victory to Change at the Creative Alliance



Creative Alliance is known around town for their incredibly thought-provoking, creative, eclectic events.  They find the hidden artistic gems in our city and generously put them on display for us.  Baltimore-based filmmaker, Gregory Marsh, brings us the story of Victory for Change, a documentary about two Indian women fighting for the rights of the marginalized in Indian society.  The untouchables, women and children are often neglected, and Marsh felt compelled to bring light to those who work for the betterment of others. This Thursday, check out a screening of this powerful film, followed by a panel discussion with Elizabeth Alex from Casa Maryland, Aida Pinto-Baquero from Mis Raices, Sawsan Al Sayyab of International Rescue Committee, and members of Baltimore Women’s Forum, a monthly dialogue group of refugee women, including Mary Kinyoli of Kenya, and Nidaa Haseeb of Iraq.
