On Tuesday, November 1, all STF leaders representing the Santa Clarita Valley joined forces to host a screening of The First Grader, a feature film about an 84-year-old man who fought for his country and now feels he must have the chance of an education – even if it means sitting in a classroom with six-year-olds. This was STF’s first major student-led event series to raise awareness through STF’s Right to Education campain.

Additional screenings were held at Wildwood School on November 18 with over 12o attendees, at Sierra Canyon School on December 2 with over 80 attendees, and at Palisades Charter High School with over 350 attendees to create awareness of the Human Rights Mobile Library. All events concluded with a Q&A session with the film’s producer, Richard Harding.
