|As part of CSU’s Diversity Symposium, ACT Human Rights Film Festival is proud to present a free encore screening of 2020 ACT festival film Hungry to Learn from Oct. 25-Nov. 7, 2021. Hungry to Learn will be available to watch at home, and a panel of CSU staff and students will discuss CSU’s initiatives to combat food insecurity on campus. |
The 2021 Diversity Symposium will be held virtually this year and is free and open to campus and community members who register.
About the film: Hungry To Learn introduces the faces behind an American crisis – college students so strapped to pay tuition that they don’t have enough money to eat or a place to live. A lack of food is just a symptom of a bigger problem – the American Dream of a college education slipping out of reach. This documentary is not just about the devastating hunger crisis unfolding on American campuses, it is about what can – and should – be done about it.
