(NJ) ‘Miss Virginia’ Film Screening and a School Choice Discussion with Virginia Walden Ford

January 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST

Miss Virginia School Choice Week Newark Film Screening

YOU’RE INVITED: A Screening of Miss Virginia and a School Choice Discussion with the woman on whose life the movie was based.

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 Newark for this special event. She will also sign copies of her new book, School Choice: A Legacy to Keep.

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.

For more information and to RSVP, visit the event website.
