National Premiere of No Small Matter - LIVE!
Thursday, June 25, 2020
7:00 PM - Duration: 1 hour
America’s early learning infrastructure was fragile even before COVID-19. But the pandemic has pushed it to the brink of collapse. Half of all child care sites have closed, and the ones that remain open have to navigate unprecedented financial strains. With no other option but to stay home with their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, millions of parents are unable to return to work, paralyzing efforts to restart the nation’s economy.
What has suddenly become self-evident to our country is that early education is essential. Put simply, America doesn’t work without it.
That's why on Thursday, June 25, we will be releasing No Small Matter nationwide — LIVE on Facebook and Twitter— to say thank you to America's early educators, and discuss the way forward for our country's providers and families in this time of crisis.
This free town hall event will include a pre-show (just for kids!), a screening of the feature film, introduced by Alfre Woodard, and a live panel discussion highlighting the devastating impact of COVID-19 on children, families, caregivers, and the economy. This event is produced in partnership with Child Care Aware, NAEYC, Save the Children Action Network, United Way Worldwide, ZERO TO THREE, and more.
RSVP for this critical, timely conversation.
Don't forget to join us for our 7:30PM ET pre-show for kids!
We're genuinely just as excited for this segment as we are for the main event. Our livestream kicks off with the Virtual Yellow Room Half-Hour Variety Hour, hosted by everyone's favorite preschool teacher Rachel Giannini, and featuring a silly cast of characters ranging from a grammy-nominated banjo artist to gold medalist and children's author Kristi Yamaguchi to comedian Jack McBrayer. Don't miss it!
