Paterson, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
On Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 6:00 pm, Eva’s Village will host a screening of The Anonymous People followed by a short panel discussion with New Jersey Advocates at Eva’s Village in Paterson, New Jersey. The Anonymous People is an independent film about the emerging Addiction Recovery Advocacy Movement. The film screening is being hosted in partnership between Eva’s Village and National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence – New Jersey (NCADD-NJ). “Eva’s Village is always eager to collaborate with NCADD-NJ, especially concerning issues addressing increased advocacy and decreased stigma around alcohol and drug addiction,” stated Michael Santillo, administrative director at Eva’ Village.
The moving story of The Anonymous People is told through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, public figures, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected officials, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.
Eva's Village (http://www.evasvillage.org), originally a New Jersey soup kitchen, was founded in 1982 by Msgr. Vincent E. Puma in response to the increasing incidence of homelessness in his Paterson, NJ parish. But Msgr. Puma soon realized that a soup kitchen was not enough. With the generous support of thousands of donors and private and government grants, Eva's has grown to be the most respected anti-poverty program in New Jersey. Their mission is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, treat the addicted and provide medical and dental care to the poor with respect for the human dignity of each individual.
