Movie Screening: Raising of America

November 15, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us Wednesday, November 15th from 7:00-9:00pm for a screening of Raising of America. This documentary is changing the conversation about early childhood. This film discusses the importance of early childhood and the desperate need to improve our current system.

Raising of America tells the stories of families and communities doing all they can to provide the nurturing environments all babies and young children need to thrive-while too often hindered by social conditions. And when parents are pressed, babies pay the price. The consequences may last a lifetime, shaping both individual outcomes-learning, earning and mental and physical health-as well as the future health, prosperity and equity of the nation.


The film makes a compelling case that improving conditions for families with young children is perhaps the most prudent investment any nation can make. Panel discussion will follow the film.
