MALA Presents CNN Films “WE WILL RISE” At Columbia University
In CNN Films’ “We Will Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educate Girls Around the World,” the First Lady, Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto and CNN’s Isha Sesay take a journey to Morocco and Liberia, where they meet young women overcoming incredible odds to change their lives.
In honor of the United Nation’s “International Day of the Girl”, MALA is thrilled to present this special screening of “We Will Rise” to the general public at Columbia University. MALA envisions communities to be prosperous, vibrant, cohesive and ready to face the challenges of the future by eliminating barriers that perpetuate gender disparity. We believe that through community engagement and awareness, we can further advance the promotion of addressing the most common barriers girls and women face when trying to succeed in in various sectors in life.
MALA’s programs are committed to gender equality, and works to provide theories of change to underpin action. We invite you to join us for this special occasion to amplify voices and personal narratives to further increase advocacy, outreach, and education. We thank Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism for sponsoring this event.
