The Kids We Lose Exposes the Brutal Reality
One component of our public awareness efforts is our digital campaign, which reached 1.5 million people in 2021.
Another component is our award-winning documentary, The Kids We Lose. This feature-length film exposes the futility and brutality of how our most vulnerable kids are still being treated, makes a clear connection between that treatment and the school-to-prison pipeline, and offers a glimpse of a future without detentions, suspensions, expulsions, restraints, seclusions, and corporal punishment. The Kids We Lose has already won many accolades, including Best Documentary at the 2018 New Hampshire Film Festival, the 2019 Whistleblower Summit and Film Festival in Washington, DC, the 2019 Women’s Film Festival in Philadelphia, and the 2019 Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival. The film has also screened on Maine Public Television and Vermont Public Television.
