The film features the voices of eight survivors of sexual violence. Following the film, McNeal, a graduate student at the University of Northern Iowa in the social work program, will join a panel discussion that focuses on ways to support, encourage and empower survivors.

"We Are Survivors" was co-produced with Iowa State alum Michael Phipps and former ISU student and graduate of the Carolina Film Institute Quinton Wayne.
