The Student Nurses Association is honored to hold an exclusive film screening of "Salam Neighbor." Salam (Hello) Neighbor is a film and campaign to connect the world to refugees. Through this film, we are immersed into the life of a Syrian refugee through the journey of filmmakers Chris Temple and Zach Ingrasci-- as the first filmmakers allowed to be registered and given a tent inside of a refugee camp.
You can watch a trailer of the film here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=W6SxPSZVD9o
Our event will take place on Tuesday March 29th at promptly 5 pm in the UIC School of Public Health Auditorium at 1603 W Taylor St, Chicago, IL 60612. It will last anywhere between 2-2.5 hours. Food and refreshments will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. The film screening will be followed by an open mic discussion of the film, where students can share their thoughts and insights on the current refugee crisis plaguing our world. We are excited to announce one very inspiring Syrian speaker who will be shedding light on his own experiences inside Syria, and how we, as humans, as future leaders, can affect positive change in our world.
The event is free and open to the public, but donations will be encouraged at the door and throughout the event. All proceeds will go to Hope for Syria. The Hope for Syria Foundation was specifically formed to alleviate the suffering of, provide hope to, and build a better future for the Syrian people.
