Location: Multidisciplinary Building | Room 223


Join us for the Kentucky Premiere of the award-winning documentary A Day's Work, hosted by the University of Kentucky College of Public Health. The screening will be held in room 223 of the Multidisciplinary Science Building (MDS) on the UK campus. Parking validation is available to those who register.

Screening of the film will be followed by a discussion about workers' rights and workplace safety, connecting the film to local issues and action. Audience members and students will have an opportunity to engage with community leaders, educators, and the film's producer.

About the Film: 90 minutes before he was killed on his first day of work as a temporary employee, 21-year-old Day Davis texted a picture of himself to his girlfriend, excited for their future. Now Day's sister, 17-year-old Antonia, searches for answers. An investigation reveals the troubling issues that led to Day's death and how the $100 billion temporary staffing industry is putting millions of American workers at risk.
