Rise up to stop the violence against women and children in our community!
February 16th from 12:00-12:30, Sierra College will Rise Up! against the epidemic of violence on women and children in our community. Please note that we will be screening the documentary The Hunting Ground twice - once at 12:30 and once for the community at-large at 7:00pm with an educational, legal and law enforcement panel for discussion immediately following.
