Millions have watched the ground breaking documentary-drama, "The Social Dilemma," which features the voices of technologists, researchers, and activists working to align technology with the interests of humanity. We tweet, we like, and we share, but what are the consequences of our growing dependence on social media? "The Social Dilemma" reveals how social media is reprogramming civilization with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations. 

Join us for a virtual viewing of "The Social Dilemma" from 6:15-7:45. From 8:00-9:00, Mike Feurstein, award-winning filmmaker, teacher, and the creator of UnMake a Bully and a partner in the DON'T WAIT to UnMake a Bully program, will facilitate a discussion. Feurstein is dedicated to giving students a voice in the stand against bullying through film and anti-bullying education and has researched the negative effects of social media on young people. You may attend the entire program with the documentary and discussion or watch the documentary on your own (requires Netflix subscription) and attend only the discussion portion, which starts at 8:00.

For students in grades 6-12 WITH parents/caregivers, educators, parents of children younger than 6th grade, and anyone who may be interested in this important conversation. Please register.
