Please join filmmaker Kelly Burkhardt and Host Deb Francesco for a great night of inspiration and entertainment to raise money for the documentary film THE GLORIA! PROJECT. This thought-provoking feature-length documentary is about the life and legacy of transformative civil rights leader and Latina lesbian Gloria Casarez. The film will weave archival footage, graphic novel elements, animation and interviews to tell the story of our beloved activist/advocate/leader of Philadelphia's LGBT communities. And this documentary will also dig into the last five decades and unpack the factors that affected her growing up, but ultimately drew Gloria Casarez to community and governmental work for marginalized communities. Her impact goes well-beyond Philadelphia and will be in motion for many, many years especially with the announcement of the Gloria Casarez Residence by Project HOME. Gloria is OUR Wonder Woman and sharing her story far and wide is crucial now more than ever! Come be a part of this special project from the beginning! *The Center for Independent Documentary is the fiscal sponsor for THE GLORIA! PROJECT
