Actions and Detail Panel
Resilience Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Fri, March 31, 2017, 4:30 PM – 7:00 PM EDT
On November 14, 2016, I was invited to the White House to attend the screening of the film Resilience. Resilience is a documentary that looks at how "toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time and early death."
Prior to the film screening in D.C., there was a panel discussion around the importance of stakeholders working together to address this important issue. (Side note: our wonderful friend and colleague Robert Listenbee was one of the panelists). I was so moved by the panel discussion that I contacted the film's marketing team and obtained permission to show the film here in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia District Attorney's Office, Teenshop, Inc., Murals Arts Philadelphia, Defender Association of Philadelphia, and the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disABILITY Services are pleased to sponsor a viewing of the critically acclaimed film, RESILIENCE.
Immediately following the film screening, a panel of stakeholders will help us unpack some of the issues that emerge in relation to our practice here in Philadelphia. The panel will be moderated by Elleanor Jean Hendley, former Emmy Award-Winning TV journalist at CBS3 and founder of Teenshop, INC.
Join us on Friday, March 31, 2017 at 4:30 pm at the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office at 3 South Penn Square, Philadelphia, Pa 19107.
Please keep in mind that space is limited. So, please register to attend as soon as possible to reserve your seat.
Can't wait to you see you!
