Cancel your plans tomorrow night, because ONE is hosting a great event and we want you to be there. We’re premiering our new short documentary, “Voodoo and Vaccines in Benin, Africa,” on Facebook, Thursday, June 2 at 9PM ET.
ONE collaborated with VBS, hipster magazine Vice’s television network (fun fact: Spike Jonze is the creative director), to produce a short film about the unique partnership between practitioners of traditional and modern medicine in Benin. Shamans and doctors are working together to overcome barriers to childhood vaccinations — and ultimately, save lives.
We’ll be playing the 22-minute documentary right on Facebook — so you can watch it right from your computer. All you have to do is sign in, go to Facebook Live and wait for the film to start. The best part is that you can chat with other US ONE members during and after the premiere.
Our global health policy expert Todd Summers will be on the chat feature to answer your questions. He has 25 years of experience in health policy and has worked in government and non-governmental organizations, so he knows what he’s talking about. Get a head start and tweet him at @ToddAtONE.
And if you haven’t signed our vaccines petition yet, I hope you can feel my wrath all the way from Washington, D.C. Sign the petition here and join 300,000 ONE members in helping to save four million children in just five years.
