Thank you for your interest in attending the special screening of Wounded Places, part of the PBS series The Raising of America produced by California Newsreel. We’re thrilled at the enthusiastic response from local community organizers, service providers, elected officials, and leaders in health, early childhood and youth empowerment.
About The Raising of America:
The Raising of America grew directly out of California Newsreel’s award-winning four-hour PBS series, UNNATURAL CAUSES: Is Inequality Making Us Sick. The series explores why child well-being in the U.S. is so much worse than other wealthy countries and how we might provide opportunities for our children to have healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous and equitable futures.
From the co-sponsors:
UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, First 5 Alameda County, Alameda County Public Health Department and Youth Uprising serve children most at-risk for abuse, neglect and violence and the trauma that comes as a result. At this event, we’ll highlight some of the ways that organizations in the Bay Area are addressing and preventing the issue of childhood trauma and focus on what we are doing to support the strength and resiliency of children and their families.
