National Crime Victim Law Institute will host a free* screening of the film “Audrie & Daisy” Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. on the Law School campus of Lewis and Clark College. The impacts of sexual violence in our schools are felt by all of us so this event is open to the entire community, with parents who have middle and high school students encouraged to attend with their children. “Audrie & Daisy” tells the story of two teenage girls who went to parties, drank alcohol, and were sexually assaulted by people that they knew. They later learned the crimes were documented on cell phones and images of their assaults were circulated. The film documents how their lives, and the lives of those around them, were changed forever. This film debuted at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and is being distributed by Netflix this fall. *The screening is free, but due to limited seating, registration is required.
