Human Rights Watch Film Screening and Panel Discussion of Homestretch

The Ann and Jerry Moss Theater at New Roads School

3131 Olympic Blvd., Santa Monica, 90404

5:00pm to 8:00pm

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 successfully exposes larger policy issues of juvenile justice, immigration, foster care, and LGBTQIA rights.

Join us after the movie with The Homestretch 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.
