Event description

Description

"Raising of America" is a 5 part documentary that illustrates how a strong start for all our kids can lead to better individual outcomes AND a healthier, safer, more prosperous and equitable America.

We will be viewing episode 2, "Once Upon a Time," at this event. You do NOT need to have seen episode 1 to participate, as each episode explores a unique aspect of early childhood education.

In Episode 2, we will see that childcare in America is a frayed patchwork—uneven in quality, unaffordable to most and failing many of our youngest children and their families. "Once Upon a Time" allows us to imagine how things might be different if all the nation’s children had access to high-quality early care and education for the past four decades . . . because we almost did.

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