The documentary, which is getting Oscar buzz, exposes systematic cover ups of sexual assaults on U.S. college campuses and tells the stories of survivors  who are fighting for justice. 

“The Hunting Ground” will be shown on CNN this summer, and will be available on Netflix in the fall. You can learn more about how to get involved at HuntingGroundFilm.com
