Unity Days Event: "No Small Matter" Screening

As a part of Unity Days Cville 2019, Teachstone, along with our partners at CASTL, the Center for the Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning at UVa., are sponsoring a screening of the 70-minute film, No Small Matter(www.nosmallmatter.com/). The film explores the struggle that parents nationwide have in finding quality early childhood care and education—and the role that access has in improving equity in our communities.

After the screening, we’ll host a panel discussion featuring local community members and organizations who are working to close the opportunity gap in early childhood education in Charlottesville. We’ll open up a conversation to learn about attendees’ experiences with the local educational system and brainstorm ways citizens can become advocates of educational equity.

Panelists include:

  • Mary Coleman, Interim Executive Director, City of Promise
  • Gail Esterman, Director of Early Learning, ReadyKids
  • Amanda Williford, Research Associate Professor, Curry School of Ed. at UVA
  • Melissa Carter, Head Start Director, MACAA

The film will start at 1:30. Arrive early to grab a free popcorn and find your seat!

 Tickets are FREE but registration is required:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/no-small-matter-film-screening-and-panel-discussion-tickets-65434766147?aff=cville
