Due to severe weather during the last screening, The Out of the Closet and Onto the Screen series at Ithaca College will host a second showing of the documentary “Free CeCe!” on Wednesday, March 7. Free and open to the public, the screening will be held at 6 p.m. in Textor 101.

On her way to the store with a group of friends, CeCe McDonald was brutally attacked. While defending her life, a man was killed and CeCe was incarcerated in a men’s prison in Minnesota. The documentary, executive produced by actress Laverne Cox, explores the role race, class and gender played in CeCe’s case, putting a spotlight on the way CeCe and other trans people are leading a growing movement fighting for the rights of transgender people everywhere.

Resources will be available at the screening for those wishing to learn more about prison justice issues, and about how to write letters of support and encouragement to LGBTQ folks who are incarcerated. Student leaders from Ithaca College organizations focused on themes of incarceration and criminal justice will also be in attendance with information.

Documentarian Jac Gares pushed past the everyday narratives of victimhood surrounding the lives of transgender people, to spotlight the way CeCe and other trans people are leading a growing movement fighting for the rights of transgender people everywhere. CeCe's powerful story highlights the groundswell of voices questioning the prison industrial complex and calling for its disassembly.
