Set in the crowded by-lanes of small-town India, the film chronicles the secret lives of four women in search of a little freedom. Though stifled and trapped in their worlds, these women claim their desires through small acts of courage and stealthy rebellion. THIS FILM WAS BANNED in April 2017 by the Governement of India's Central Board for Film Certification (CBFC), terming it "lady-oriented."
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29

REFUGEE | USA & Senegal | 28 minutes Watch Trailer: https://goo.gl/V1yTUW This film follows the journey of West African refugee Aicha Diop. Her single story sheds light on the thousands who seek refuge in the United States every year. It's a timely and hugely important topic, given its due in this gorgeous, moving film.
(OTTO) | The Netherlands | 10 minutes Watch Trailer: https://goo.gl/i896md From the creators of the Oscar-nominated short "A Single Life" comes this animated story of a woman who, after finding out she can't have children, kidnaps a young girl's imaginary friend.

Chronicling the life of Heather Booth, a lifelong progressive organizer, the film follows her journey from civil rights activist in the '60s to her founding of the Midwest Academy, a training institute for progressive community organizers. As a teenager, she spent time in Israel, where a visit to Yad Vashem moved her to make a commitment to fight against injustice. For more than 40 years, she has been a major force in the movement for women's rights and economic justice. The film features interviews with Senator Elizabeth Warren and other organizers, as well as current Midwest Academy students, who explore Booth's legacy.
Special panel with Heather Booth, Christine Pelosi, & Darrah DiGiorgio Johnson to follow!

The Community Food Bank @ The Center is a flagship initiative that provides nutritional assistance for those in need. The Community Food Bank @ The Center provides food assistant to all qualified individuals without discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, religion, political persuasion, national origin, disability, and/or covered veteran status.
Every Thursday evening all year long, we host a clean, safe and accessible Food Bank that provides FREE groceries for over 275 households each week. Since 2008, the Food Bank at the Center has been providing groceries, baked goods, meat, and fresh produce to low-income Riverside County residents. Proof of residency in Riverside County is required, and all are welcome if they meet these basic requirements. The Program served over 16,000 households last year and is often at capacity. In working to reduce and eliminate hunger for these families, we’re building advocacy networks that are addressing this issue, not only in the LGBTQ community, but county-wide.
We strive to provide the highest quality product at the lowest possible cost. By building relationships with area restaurants, food distributors and other social service providers we’re able to offer a generous grocery selection at a cost of only $10 per week! With your help, we can continue to provide a week’s worth of groceries to those in need. Please consider making a one-time gift of $10, $40, $100, or more. Or, make a monthly pledge of $10 or more below.
We thank you for your generous, ongoing support of The Community Food Bank @The Center.
