The Raising of America

For being such a wealthy nation, the well being of our country’s children is truly troubling. The Raising of America, a documentary series soon to debut on PBS, brings the quality education and the importance of healthcare back into focus. Hosted by The Alliance for Family, Friend and Neighbor Child Care, the hourlong premiere episode screens at FilmBar as part of a three-pronged event: featuring a cocktail hour, film screening, and a presentation by local speaker Calvin Terrell.

Small plates served at 6 p.m.; show time at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24, at 815 North Second Street. Tickets are $10 for the 21-and-over screening. A portion of the proceeds supports the AFFNCC. Visit and or call 602-595-9187 for tickets.
