This moving, award-winning documentary by KARE11 follows the Principal Mauri Melander Friestleben, Lucy Laney Elementary, on a journey to change the trajectory of each child’s life. The challenges faced by Principal Friestleban and her staff are not unique to this Minneapolis school. Indeed, many of the children in tutoring programs all over the Twin Cities and our nation face similar systemic challenges. The film will be followed by group discussions. All book donations will be distributed to a child in East Side Learning Center’s Literacy Mentoring program. Light refreshments will be served in the lobby. Parking is available at the church or on the street.
