"The Invisible War," a Sundance Film Festival award-winning documentary is a powerful film about women in the military who have been raped or assaulted by fellow soldiers. It will be shown for the first time in Pittsburgh on November 29th when
hosts a free event at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion on a range of veterans' issues. On the panel are: Jessica Kenyon, a U.S. Army veteran who is currently a victim advocate; Jackie Shellaby, a clinical social worker who runs the Homeless Veterans Day Program at Veterans Place, and Dr. Katie McCorkle, founder of the Balanced Heart Healing Center in Mars, Pa.
"We feel this event is an important followup to the stories we've published with our partners about returning veterans, including reports about slow disability payments, jobs and PTSD," said Sharon Walsh, editor of PublicSource. "It's also an opportunity for the community to come out and discuss these issues."
The event takes place on Thursday, November 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Marshall Building - Simmons Hall. Free parking is available on the site.
The free event is part of the PublicSource Coming Home PA series. See all the stories here.
