Subject: An Invitation to the Tribunal Film


Please see the invite below to a film screening in Vancouver.


 African Grandmothers 

The film features the courageous African grandmothers who gave powerful and emotional testimonies at the African Grandmothers Tribunal in Vancouver, BC in 2013. This moving new documentary shines a light on the urgent need to provide better protection for the human rights of African grandmothers who, after watching their adult children die of AIDS, have become the primary caregivers for millions of orphaned grandchildren.
