Seattle to Uganda: A Journey of Hope and Health

The Seattle Channel invites you to a public screening of a new documentary “Seattle to Uganda: A Journey of Hope” which follows local women on an inspiring trip to a small village in Northern Uganda. It’ll be shown Sunday, April 15th at 4pm.

In the fall of 2010, Seattle resident Maureen Brotherton invited 10 women—most of them unknown to each other – to join her on a journey to visit the women in Aminocira, Uganda. Seattle documentary filmmaker Penny LeGate followed along as women from opposite sides of the globe “forged a partnership that continues to inspire awareness, social change, health opportunities and hope for a better future.”

The free, public screening of the half-hour documentary will take place at Seattle University’s Wyckoff Auditorium, Bannan Engineering Building, 901 12th Ave. Brotherton,

LeGate and several of the women will reunite for the preview and a post-screening talk.

The Community Stories series is about the inspirational people, the relevant issues and the cultural traditions and rich histories that make up our many communities. These short television profiles highlight our residents through stories consisting of personal interviews, slice-of-life episodes and insightful portraits. The series has won several local Emmy awards.

To attend, RSVP to Lori Patrick at or (206) 733-9764.
