Join the Junior Board for “Mothers of Bedford” Screening and Panel Discussion, November 21, 2013

On Thursday, November 21, 2013, the Junior Board of FSW will host a special screening of “Mothers of Bedford,” a documentary following five women incarcerated at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility who are trying to maintain strong relationships with their children, nurture them and play central roles in their lives despite living behind bars.  They are supported by an innovative children’s center that creates a space for positive change in the least likely of settings:  prison.  Like the Bedford Hills children’s center, FSW’s EMERGE and Fathers Count programs provide vital resources to incarcerated and recently released mothers and fathers through parenting workshops and employment readiness training.  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring FSW speakers including Fern Davis, EMERGE participant, Janet Donat, EMERGE Director and Caroline Walcott, Program Director.  Proceeds from this event will benefit the Junior Board of FSW and their Youth Enrichment Fund.  Tickets are $40 per person and include admission to the reception, film screening and discussion.  The event will take place at the Pelham Picture House, 175 Wolfs Lane, Pelham.  To purchase tickets, contact Marianne at mgordineer@fsw.org or call 914-305-6876.
