Grassroots Rainbow Town Screening in Washington!
Rainbow Town storms Washington! That’s Washington, Oklahoma of course!
Twenty minutes from the hometown of Rainbow Town Director Lauren Selmon Roberts, a group of volunteers headed up by Amanda Deshotels coordinated a grassroots Rainbow Town screening.
The small town evening in America’s heartland was a huge success for Rainbow Town, which is located an ocean away in a rural West African village.
There was free popcorn for everyone. The Director shared about the making of the movie. A Q&A followed the film screening. And, the community looked at Rainbow Town Art, which was on display around the venue.
Contributions from the night will cover expenses for a semester of college for 12 Liberian students.
With a population of under 600, the community of Washington proved that you don’t have to live in a big city to make a global impact.
