Join San Jose City Councilmember Raul Peralez and Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez for a free community screening of the documentary "The Kids We Lose" on Thursday, September 26th at 5:30pm at 3Below Theaters & Lounge (288 S 2nd St), validated parking at Second Street Garage ONLY.
This 90-minute documentary explores the human side of having a child or student with learning and/or behavioral challenges while looking at the struggles faced by parents, educators, staff in facilities, mental health clinicians, and law enforcement professionals in trying to ensure that these children receive the appropriate support. The Kids We Lose is intended to heighten awareness and provide additional information around this topic.
"The Kids We Lose" won the Best Feature Documentary Award at the 2018 New Hampshire Film Festival, the 2019 Women’s Film Festival in Philadelphia, and the 2019 Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival.
After the screening, we will hold a community forum led by a panel of experts. It's a moment to have an honest discussion regarding how to build positive community networks aligned with a common belief that all children can succeed in school and life.
