CSN watch party

The Community Safety Network, partnering with St. John’s Episcopal Church, will host a virtual watch party next month featuring Amy Poehler’s new movie “Moxie.” Parents of teens are encouraged to attend, but anyone is welcome.

“We hope the film will act as an easy jumping-off point to discuss lots of important but sometimes challenging topics: empowerment, healthy masculinity, supportive friendships, race, sexual assault prevention, and supporting survivors of assault and abuse,” the Facebook event states.The Netflix drama features a teen who anonymously publishes a zine at her high school calling out sexist behaviors, inspired by her mom’s history of protesting.

“It’s a relatively realistic example of the struggles and strengths of the mother/teen daughter relationship,” CSN’s Director of Education and Prevention Adrian Croke said, “and shows some ways to start/have tough conversations. I think watching it with your teen can open up some good conversations, too.”

Email adrian@csnjh.org for instructions and the party link, or to RSVP. Visit Netfilxparty.com before the event to download the plugin that allows you to use the “party” feature.The watch party is at 7 p.m. April 16. You need a Netflix login to join.
