Through the screening of the documentary “A Better Man,” attendees will witness the journey of a survivor and the man who abused her, as they come together years later to confront their past and seek understanding and healing. The film provides a unique and empathetic exploration of the complexities surrounding domestic violence, encouraging viewers to reflect on the impact of their own actions and relationships.

After the documentary screening, YWCA Spokane staff will lead a debrief of the documentary. Together we will discuss key takeaways from the film, how larger social factors played a role in the relationship, and what accountability and justice means in practice. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in open dialogue and gain valuable insights from the panelists’ diverse perspectives.

Breaking the Cycle: A Better Man seeks to create a safe and inclusive space for community members, advocates, and survivors to come together, learn, and take action towards ending domestic violence.
