• FILM SYNOPSIS •
Created by Nebraska Loves Public Schools, Seeds of Hope explores how schools welcome and educate immigrant and refugee families as they start their lives over in America. Follow Nebraska’s newcomer students: the inconceivable trauma and tribulations of their past, the perseverance to succeed in the present, and their hopes for a brighter future through quality education.
• ABOUT THE LIVE FORUM •
This film and its accompanying panel discussion are part of a special event series between News Channel Nebraska and Nebraska Loves Public Schools. The event is free and open to the public. The event will also bring together community partners to connect parents, teachers, and community members with the efforts to increase empathy and awareness for our families in our school communities. The goal of this event series encourages others to continue support for public schools.
