Fostering Film Screening
May 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Drawing on unprecedented access, Oscar winners Deborah Oppenheim and Mark Jonathan Harris upend some of the most enduring myths about foster care, going beyond the sensational headlines and stereotypes. FOSTER interweaves first-hand stories of those navigating the child protection system with insights from social workers, lawyers, and other advocates to offer a realistic but hopeful perspective on a community that needs society’s support. Join us for a screening of Foster and learn more about the varied experiences and perspectives the film’s subjects had of the child welfare system. See how these perspectives align or challenge your own beliefs and participate in a facilitated discussion following the film.
- Gain an understanding of the foster care system through the eyes of a foster youth, foster parent, and case manager
- Learn about the unique challenges for each person depicted in the film
- Have an opportunity to share how viewing these stories may change how they see or how they work with clients and professionals in the child welfare system
