REDgen Presents the Documentary REJECT

Join us for the Screening of Reject

7pm Dominican High School Auditorium.

REJECT takes a science-based and solution-oriented look at the roots of bullying behavior and violent behavior against the self or others.  The film aims to raise public consciousness about the serious and potentially lethal consequences of interpersonal rejection in its many forms—peer bullying, parental neglect (or abuse), race discrimination, and other forms of social rejection across all age groups.  It speaks to parents, teachers, administrators, organizations that train teachers, coaches, mental health professionals, clergy, counselors, juvenile judges, office managers—that is, anyone entrusted with influence over others and in a position to foster acceptance, inclusion and social connection.
