Howard Center’s free and open to the public Marna and Stephen Wise Tulin Fall Community Education Series kicks off on Sept. 12, 6-8:30 p.m., with a showing of “Major!” The documentary follows the life and campaigns of Miss Major Griffin-Gracy, a 73-year-old black transgender woman who has been fighting for the rights of trans women of color for over 40 years.

The talk will be followed by a Q&A and a panel presentation.

This first session in the Fall Community Education Series is at the Main Street Landing Film House, 60 Lake Street in Bur-lington.

The series continues Sept. 26 with “Suicide: The Ripple Effect.” This film is part of a global mission to help reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts around the world, and part of a statewide screening coordinated by Vermont Care Partners. On Oct. 3, “Daniel, Debra, Leslie, (and You?)” is a film screening about the complex meaning of recov-ery.

The panel presentation, “An Overview of Cannabidiol (CBD) – Magic Elixir or Not?” moderated by Howard Center’s Sandra Steingard, M.D., closes the series Nov. 13.
