To celebrate National School Choice Week, PEFNC hosts free movie screening of “Miss Virginia”
Raleigh (January 27, 2020) – North Carolina’s leading school-choice advocacy organization, Parents for Educational Freedom (PEFNC), is hosting a free film screening for “Miss Virginia” on January 28 at 6:30pm at the Cameo Art House Theater in downtown Fayetteville. Free popcorn and soda will be provided.
Based on a true story, “Miss Virginia” stars Emmy winner Uzo Aduba as a struggling single mother who is losing her 15-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, D.C. Unwilling to see him drop out and deal drugs, she places him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that’s destroying him and thousands like him. Attacked and threatened by those who don’t want change—from corrupt politicians to the local drug lord—Virginia must discover depths of strength she never knew she had.
“This film is a heartwarming depiction of a mother’s love and dedication to fight the system on behalf of her son and others like him,” said PEFNC director of outreach Allison Guenther.
Doors open at 6pm and the movie starts at 6:30pm. Tickets are limited. Reserve yours now.
