The Foster Care Film and Community Engagement Project (FCFCEP) and City Living NY, invite you to join us on May 25, 2022 at 7 p.m. EST for a special free virtual screening of “Family Rewritten,” “For A Better Life” and “Feeling Wanted,” three award-winning documentary short films which highlight the stories of youth growing up in the foster care system.

Following the film screening there will be a moderated panel discussion with film subjects, foster care alumni, and their support systems, about how to re-imagine the current child welfare system to better support the emotional and mental health needs of youth in care.
