13 Oct November 2nd: “Raising of America” Film Screening
Free Movie Screening and Discussion!
The Raising of America: Early Childhood and the Future of Our Nation
WHEN: Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017; 6:00 – 7:45 pm
The Raising of America Series is a five-part documentary series that explores the questions: Why are so many children in America faring so poorly? What are the consequences for the nation’s future? How might we, as a nation, do better? These questions are investigated through different lenses:
1. What does science tell us about the enduring importance of early life experiences on the brain and body?
2. What it is like to be a parent today? and,
3. What policies and structures help or hinder the raising of healthy, happy and compassionate children?
Join us for the viewing of the first installment in the documentary series (58 minutes) which covers all three of these issues. We will then have a discussion led by a panelist of community and state leaders about how to reframe the way we look at early child health and development and how the community can make a difference.
