The Voice of 650 Million Times One – Free Film Screening and Discussion
Join Cuso International's Volunteers 4 the World Toronto Committee for a screening of the award-winning film The Voice of 650 Million Times One.
In this VSO sponsored documentary from award-winning Dutch director, Marijn Poels, people with disabilities around the globe talk candidly about their exclusion from society in matters such as healthcare, sexuality, and in particular, their vulnerability to HIV and AIDS. A testament to the courage and commitment of many people who daily battle against prejudice while carrying out their lives as parents and members of the communities in which they live, this film also reveals the many misconceptions around sexuality, HIV and people with a disability. The film will be followed with a presentation and discussion with Yin Brown, Program Officer for Advocacy and Alliances at CBM Canada an international development organization focusing on people with disabilities.
