The Raising of America Series is a terrific five-part documentary series that raises the question: Why are so many children in America faring so poorly? What are the consequences for the nation’s future? How might we, as a nation, do better? The five films explore how a strong start for all our kids can lead to better individual outcomes AND a healthier, safer, better educated and more prosperous and equitable America. Between now and November 30, you can view all episodes for free at the ROA web site.
Our friends at Smart Start of Mecklenburg County and ZFive are partnering alongside the Raising of America initiative to change the conversation on what it means to be a parent in Mecklenburg County. As part of that initiative, they are organizing a series of Community Cafes in our area for the next several months. That list can be found here.
