Call Her Ganda | Film Screening
Sunday, November 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join the Esperanza Peace & Justice Center, the San Antonio Gender Association (SAGA), & Transgender Education Network of Texas (TENT) for a screening of CALL HER GANDA. We hope this screening will help raise awareness about the attacks on the trans community, and the story of Jennifer’s community seeking justice will empower viewers and provoke action towards change.
About CALL HER GANDA
When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina transwoman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case–an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan) and Jennifer’s mother (Julita “Nanay” Laude) – galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of US imperialism.
