Community Mental Health Awareness Weekend
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The community is invited to view the awards winning film, “Fight for Good” featuring the Community Health Center of Niagara (CHCN) of Buffalo, Inc. A local documentary project, produced in collaboration with the Community Health Center of Niagara, Inc., presents a 22-minute film exploring the center’s work, during the coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 disproportionately affects communities of color, highlighting the inequities of our healthcare system. The CHCN’s overarching mission is to reduce health disparities in our society and city. In “Fight for Good,” a CHCN executive and two physicians – all women of color – are captured in an unguarded style, revealing both their personal motivations and their higher goals. —Jana Eisenberg
