film screening flyerVALLEJO, CA – The City of Vallejo is sponsoring a moderated screening of the film “No Small Matter,” a feature-length documentary and national engagement campaign on the progress of early education in America. Vice Mayor Pippin Dew is hosting and organizing the film screening on Thursday, May 16 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Empress Theatre at 330 Virginia Street in Vallejo, CA. District 1 County Supervisor, Erin Hannigan, will be moderating a panel discussion as part of the event. Panelists include Superintendent of Schools Lisette Estrella-Henderson, Supervising Solano County Clinic Pediatrician Dr. Shandi Fuller, and Executive Director of Child Start, Inc. Debbie Peralez.

On April 9, the City Council adopted “Grow Youth Opportunities” as a Tier 1 Council priority. The film focuses on the importance of early education, and Vice Mayor Dew shares that “the screening and panel is meant to bring attention to Vallejo youth, the importance of supporting them as a community from birth, and how that improves and benefits our community as a whole by doing so.”
