It's that time of the year, movie season! Around here, we love a good story. ⠀

Most films keep you interested until they're done, and then, pretty quickly, you forget about them.

But a really good film? Well, that's different. It starts changing you as you're watching it, inspires you, and stays with you long after it's ended.⠀

So...who wants to see a really good film?⠀

The award winning documentary 'Virtually Free' is a gripping true story that shows how juvenile justice, art, and unlikely allies can make a community better.

We are excited to announce the addition of the documentary 'Virtually Free' to our fall and winter programming. There are a limited number of workshop slots available with the director this fall and winter -- secure your date today!

Why is this film important?
👉Every year, about 300,000 kids are confined in youth detention in the US, limiting their potential to succeed in life.
👉70-80% will be re-arrested within 2 or 3 years of being released
👉Nearly ⅔ will never complete high school.

Richmond, Virginia's families, police, judges, artists, and activists have united in changing this in their community. This film is a documentary about unlikely allies who partner to transform the juvenile justice system and stop mass incarceration. Produced by the non-profit media company Shine Global, the 40-minute documentary Virtually Free is directed by André Robert Lee.

✔️Now booking summer and fall workshops with director André Robert Lee, including screenings of this awarding-winning documentary! Virtual and in-person options are available. Contact us at [email protected] to secure your date.

Caption this! 😀

Meet Lenny Walker. If you've participated in one of Point Made Learning's workshops or called to chat about an upcoming event, the chances are that you are familiar with Lenny.

We call this his "Please, tell me more" stance. As a facilitator and colleague, Lenny is always encouraging and modeling the importance of curiosity.

If you are struggling to understand someone's point of view today, why not try taking a page from Lenny's playbook and get curious!

The news can be overwhelming, and often even though we want to help, we don't. #Truth

👉We love it when outlets like #NPR put together articles that lay out actionable steps that can make a difference.

None of us will save the world from pain, racism, inequity, or suffering from one action, but we can collectively make an impact by taking one step.

If you have been watching the news coverage on Afghanistan and are looking for ways to help, we encourage you to head over to NPR and check out their article, "The Simple Steps You Can Take Right Now To Help Afghan Refugees" by DEEPA SHIVARAM

The 'emotional residue' attached to work and life circumstances can lead to burnout. Is this something that resonates with you?

As a small team working to help communities talk about uncomfortable subjects while the realities of the latest newsreel play in the background, we empathize with those who might be struggling.

These days we are permitting ourselves to pause when needed. This helps us to be fully present to our clients and each other.

Keep going! Your voice matters. But don't forget to pause when needed.

The #FACTS :
➡️The city of Philadelphia has custody of about 5,000 abused and neglected children.
➡️The city of Philadelphia has laws in place to ensure ALL people have the right to serve these children through foster care and adoption.
➡️The city of Philadelphia recognized that one of its contractors -- A Catholic agency -- was discriminating against LGBTQIA+ individuals
➡️The city of Philadelphia fired said agency because they broke the law

So what did the Supreme Court do? They came in and told Philadelphia that they had to give this agency its contract back even though the agency admittedly broke the law and used tax payer money to fund discriminatory practices.
➖ :
"The dramatic nature of Thursday's decision was underlined by the fact that the case involved government contracting — an area of the law in which the court in the past has said that government is at the apex of its power to impose conditions on how the taxpayers' money is spent." NPR

Dwight Garner, the chief critic of The New York Times, called Caste “an instant American classic and almost certainly the keynote nonfiction book of the American century thus far.” - www.isabelwilkerson.com
