The Graduates explores pressing issues in education today through the eyes of six Latino and Latina students from across the United States. More than a survey of contemporary policy debates, the bilingual, two-part film offers first-hand perspectives on key challenges facing Latino high school students and their families, educators, and community leaders. It is the story of the graduates who will make up America’s future. The two hour, bilingual screening will be followed by a community discussion led by Emma Salazar, Student Development Advisor, Program for Academic Advancement, Fort Lewis College.
Wednesday evening, October 16 at the Durango Discovery Museum’s Powerhouse Theater. Admission is FREE. Doors open at 5:30p, screening starts at 6p. Come early to enjoy riverside snacks and drinks. Please plan to stay for the community discussion.
