Funnel of Dreams Film Screening Online May 22

Funnel of Dreams film screening & talkback online with MOM: May 22nd, 7-8:30PM EST with Bonnie Silvestri. The film reflects on the global pandemic, and how families need to think about the work/home life paradigm and how Americans might improve things for a better future. The film dives into the history of motherhood, the struggle for women’s rights, and the issues related to family leave in the lives of working parents. At a time when women’s rights are under siege, the United States is the only industrialized nation not providing paid family leave. A director’s discussion will follow the screening. Please join our online community to RSVP to the Zoom.
