Events

Creating a peaceful Milwaukee can be as exciting as cheering on the Brewers or attending one of Milwaukee’s finest fashion shows. We offer events throughout the year to create awareness of our mission and raise funds to support our programs and services.

  • 2016 Milwaukee Film Festival

    mff2016

    Sojourner is a Community Partner in this year’s Milwaukee Film Festival. We are thrilled to be paired with the award-winning documentary Hooligan Sparrow. State surveillance. Harassment. Imprisonment. Human rights activist Ye Haiyan, AKA Sparrow, knew she faced these risks when she went to Hainan Province to seek justice for six elementary school girls who were sexually abused by their principal. But the scale and intensity of the government’s reaction surprised even the most seasoned activists across China. ‘The Road from Hainan’ follows Sparrow as she was chased from town to town by local governments, national secret police, and even her own neighbors.

    Wait – there’s more!

    The Beyond Abuse program has been paired with the award-winning film, “Somewhere in the Middle,” part of Milwaukee Film Festival’s Black Lens series. Four lovers collide into each others’ lives as one marriage morphs into several intertwining affairs. SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE was born out of a year long improvisational process in which the actors and director mutually crafted an ensemble drama. Structured like a jigsaw puzzle, no character fully grasps their current dilemma as interwoven stories are retold from varying viewpoints. (taken from IMDB)
