No Small Matter is the first feature documentary to explore the most overlooked, underestimated, and powerful force for good in America today: early childhood education. Through poignant stories and surprising humor, the film lays out the overwhelming evidence for the importance of the first five years, and reveals how our failure to act on that evidence has resulted in an everyday crisis for American families, and a slow-motion catastrophe for the country.

This is a family and kid-friendly event! Free child care will be available for children ages two to eight. Pre-registration is required for child care and space is limited.

A light dinner will be provided.
