"California's Forgotten Children" Virtual Screening Ticket with Live Q&A on Friday, June 12th, 2020 at 10:00am PST
In partnership with the Valley Crisis Center of Merced County, join us for a virtual screening of "California's Forgotten Children" documentary to fundraise to help youth who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation, sexual assault, domestic violence, and homelessness.
"California's Forgotten Children" documentary will donate 50% of net ticket sales to Valley Crisis Center to help services provided to youth in need. Any additional donation you give will 100% go to also help a child, a young adult, or family by providing food, clothing, shelter, transportation, and education supplies.
After the screening we will be hosting a live Q&A with Valley Crisis Center first responders, the police department, and director of the film.
If you cannot make the live event, the film will be available to view for 24 hours after the live Q&A with a recording of the panel discussion.
