Domestic violence affects thousands of Guilford County residents each year. In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, join us for a screening of the award-winning documentary, Private Violence, which shows the complexity of domestic violence and the community organizations that work together to support victims and hold offenders accountable. Following the film, the audience will hear from Kit Gruelle, the advocate featured in the film who also served as a Special Advisor to the film. Private Violence has been featured on HBO and at several film festivals, including Sundance and Full Frame.
