    This session explores some of the difficult topics that parents and organizations working with parents are facing throughout the country. What does it mean for the progress of community action when the NAACP vocally opposes charter schools? Are we doing enough as an education reform movement to protect the charter schools that are successful in this country? What needs to happen to close more schools that are failing? How do we bridge the gap between the grassroots organizations and the rest of the education reform community? How do we sustain long-lasting change? The panelists identify the parts of the education reform advocacy movement that are disconnected and broken and offer solutions for how to fix it. Russlynn Ali, Emerson Collective (Moderator) Alberto Retana, Community Coalition Michael Lomax (United Negro College Fund) Karen Martinez (Alum Rock School District) Shawn Sprewer, St. Marcus Lutheran School

          A highly stylized portrait of a bartender struggling to process her life while making the rounds as a local drag king performer. Lights off. Volume up. I present to you: "One for My Girl." ---- This became a special project for me and my lead actress/producer Jamie Arabolos. We bickered and bitched and commiserated together over and over and over again for months, but we wound up with a film that is just as pretty as it is difficult, which is exactly what we wanted. It's a film about expression and craft, and what happens when one, the other, or both are stymied. Special thanks to the entire cast and crew for all their help in executing this work. It would not have been possible without them.
