DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Mercy College is hosting a special free screening of the movie "The Hunting Ground," a film about the epidemic of violence and institutional cover-ups on college campuses in America, on Sunday, April 26, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. inside Main Hall.

The movie presents a scorching exposé of the startling prevalence of sexual assault at bastions of higher learning and the powerful interests that re-victimize vulnerable students while shielding perpetrators.

Using vérité footage, expert insights, first-person testimonies and a bombshell interview sure to make headlines, "The Hunting Ground" delivers a devastating indictment of campus “rape culture.”

A panel discussion/audience Q&A will take place after the screening. Panel guests include Kristen Bowes, general counsel, Mercy College; Rebecca Dince Zipkin, Sanctuary for Families and victims' rights advocate Lisa C. Smith, professor, Brooklyn Law School & New York State Violence against Women DCJS Task Force appointee.

The screening is sponsored by Westchester NOW, Mercy College and YWCA of White Plains & Central Westchester.
