The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu

The Raising of America

The Raising of America, a new documentary produced by California Newsreel, explores why American children fare so poorly compared to children in other countries. It proposes that social support, including access to quality early childhood education and paid parental leave, provide significant individual and societal benefits.

Healthy Start New Orleans had its first screening of The Raising of America on September 22 at Delgado Community College in partnership with WYES. We are looking forward to working with community organizations throughout the city to do additional screenings and kick off our Community Action Network.

If you would like to plan a screening, please download the toolkit and appendices. The toolkit provides step by step instructions on how to plan a screening in your neighborhood, and the appendices provide templates and supporting data.
