HRW Film Club Screening and Discussion of The Homestretch
Saturday, May 2, 2015

5pm | Doors open; Meet & Greet with HRW's Graeme Reid
6pm | Film screening, followed by panel discussion
8pm | Reception with tacos and drinks

Two to three thousand homeless children walk the streets of Chicago every night. The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and build a future. Through haunting images, intimate scenes, and first-person narratives, Kasey, Anthony and Roque take the audience on their journeys of struggle and triumph. As their stories unfold, the film connects us deeply to larger policy issues of juvenile justice, immigration, foster care, and LGBTQIA rights.

Join us after the movie with the film's Director Anne de Mare and Human Rights Watch LGBT Director Graeme Reid, for a discussion moderated by Melissa Schoonmaker from the Los Angeles County Office of Education. We will examine the situation of homeless youth in Los Angeles and Chicago, and explore what Human Rights Watch does to protect LGBT youth around the world.

This screening is the Film Club's annual Fundraiser.
Proceeds will benefit Human Rights Watch's Children's Rights Division, LGBT Rights Program and our local Student Task Force.
