Families and caregivers of young children are invited to join GEEARS and early childhood leaders of Fulton County for a free virtual screening and town hall on Friday, July 24th. We’ll be screening “No Small Matter,” a documentary film on early childhood development and how it impacts children, families, and the wider community.
Immediately following the film, we will host a panel discussion for Fulton County-based families to hear from local leaders on how they are currently working to support young children and families, and ways that parents can continue their own advocacy and care for young children – even through the COVID-19 pandemic.
No Small Matter is the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for good in America today: early childhood education. Through poignant stories and surprising humor, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, and reveals how our failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families, and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.
