Healthy Families and Community! Film and Discussion

Waiting List Oakland Public Library

Join us for film, discussion and healing-driven solution-seeking when we screen an excerpt from The Waiting List documentary film, directed by Bay Area filmmaker Tamara Perkins. The Waiting List addresses the gender, race and class bias impacting our current childcare and early education system.

After an opening introduction and screening of the film clip, we will hold a healing circle lead by Race Forward's Leslie Zeitler. As part of this circle and in groups afterwards, participants will share challenges, healing practices, and solutions related to supporting healthy and thriving children and families. In closing we will share and capture solutions and connect community members with resources and ways to get involved in community and advocacy efforts in the Bay Area and beyond.

 This event will be held after our regularly scheduled Toddler Storytime. Refreshments will be provided. Please contact Jesse for more information: / 510-238-6567.
