  • Google NYC 111 8th Avenue New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Join GLSEN New York City, Teach for America and Google in partnership with the Counter Narrative Project for a screening of the Oscar winning film Moonlight.

Moonlight has had an incredible impact on discussions around blackness, masculinity, and sexuality. However, Moonlightilluminates the violence often faced by black queer boys and young men in schools.

Building on current advocacy and activism around the school-to-prison pipeline and movements working against the prison industrial complex, this discussion will explore the path forward. We will unpack approaches to ending criminalization and inspiring healing in our communities.

Join us for this special screening and discussion on Friday April 21, 2017 from 6:30pm-9:00pm at Google. If you have any questions contact Charles Stephens at

Please enter on the 9th avenue and 16th street Google entrance across the street from Chelsea Market. The address is 76 9th Ave., New York, NY 10011. 

**This event supports GLSEN's National Day of Silence, whichbrings awareness to the silencing effects of anti-LGBTQ name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.
