The Leopards’ Club International Education Committee present a screening of Dale Butler’s Out Among the Ins on Thursday, April 20th.

This documentary on homelessness in Bermuda is even more relevant today. In 2009, former Minister Dale Butler spent over 80 hours all over Bermuda talking to, and filming Bermuda’s homeless. Initially he was going to just tell one story but as the numbers grew he broadened its scope and gave an insight into the seriousness of the problem.

As the Minister of Social Rehabilitation, he was able to get the PLP Government to purchase additional land and also appropriate $1million towards the development of a better shelter with a transitional plan. A committee was put into place and was ready to work but Mr. Butler was no longer a Minister and the PLP lost the Government just before it was going to commit to the development of the Bishop Spencer School, which the OBA Government has given the Salvation Army for 1 nominal rent a year.

Starting at 6pm at the Leopards’ Club, this event gives Bermudians a golden opportunity to do something to work with the many individuals in the community who attempt in various ways to help them.

The cost of admission is $10.
