#OVOS #LovingCities Community Reception and Film Screening

#OVOS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SCHOTT FOUNDATION, IS HOSTING A COMMUNITY RECEPTION AND FILM SCREENING OF "BACKPACK FULL OF CASH". This film is a cautionary tale about how privatization and funding cuts have had a devastating impact on public schools, and the most vulnerable children who rely on them. The film also showcases a model for improving schools. BACKPACK features genuine heroes like the principals, teachers, activists, parents and most hearteningly, students who are fighting for their education. BACKPACK builds a case for public education as a basic civil right, which #OVOS Leaders label the modern day 'HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUE OF ALL TIME".
