Hofstra’s 2nd Annual Ally Week kicks off this Friday, March 13th, 2015 with a special screening of Letter to Anita, a heart-wrenching documentary from award-winning filmmaker Andrea Meyerson that tells the story of one woman’s fight against the profound injustice that propelled her into a life of LGBT activism.  The film, narrated by Emmy-winning actress Meredith Baker, explores Dr. Ronni Sanlo, who lost custody of her two young children in the 1970s after divorcing her husband and coming out as a lesbian.  

Dr. Sanlo and director Andrea Meyerson will join us for the screening, a Q&A session, and a special reception to meet with students and activists before the show.  The screening is the first for the Long Island community and is open to the public. To RSVP, visit http://www.hofstra.edu/LetterToAnita.

Reception: 5:30-7 p.m. (Multipurpose Room West, Mack Student Center)

Film Screening and Q&A: 7-9 p.m. (Student Center Theater, Mack Student Center)

Ally Week runs from Friday, March 13th through Thursday, March 19th, 2015.
