​The Anonymous People
Friday, June 8 -  7:00-9:00, 51 Cole Parkway
Free documentary movie screening

The Anonymous People is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction.  Deeply entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades.  The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition.  Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, a grass roots social justice movement is emerging.  Courageous addiction recovery advocates have come out of the shadows and are organizing to end discrimination and move toward recovery-based solutions.The moving story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them.  This passionate new public recovery movement aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected officials, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.
