Diversity Film Screening: The Pushouts

Come see the award winning, inspirational story of Oaklander Victor Rios, former drop-out / gang member, now a U.C. Professor, who trains educators to help students who are at risk of being ‘pushed out’ of the school system.

This compelling documentary illuminates the unique potential of each young person, the importance of community solutions, and the impact of strong teachers and mentors.
