(IL) ‘Miss Virginia’ Film Screening and an Evening with Virginia Walden Ford
January 31 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm CST
On behalf of National School Choice Week, please join us for a special screening of Miss Virginia. Hailed as a “must-see” movie by USA Today, the film follows a struggling inner-city mother who sacrifices everything to give her son a good education. Unwilling to allow him to stay in a dangerous school, she launches a movement that could save his future—and that of thousands like him.
After the movie, meet and talk with legendary school choice advocate Virginia Walden Ford (the real-life Miss Virginia!), who will join us in Chicago for this special event. She will also sign copies of her new book, School Choice: A Legacy to Keep.
Free popcorn and soda will be served during the movie.
This is a free event and an RSVP is required.
Miss Virginia is rated PG-13: Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
