Fresno Building Healthy Communities is proud to present a special screening of "Raising Zoey" on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at Roosevelt High School, 4250 E. Tulare Avenue. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

"Raising Zoey", directed by Dante Alencastre, is the heartwarming story of a family faced with the insurmountable challenges of a youth’s gender transition.

Affecting the lives of countless kids, teenagers and even adults, 13 year-old trans activist Zoey Luna wants nothing more than to simply go to school, learn, have fun with her friends in Downey, CA. Unfortunately, ignorance and intolerance have not always made this easy. With the help of her mother Ofelia, her older sister Leticia and the ACLU, Zoey fought school officials for her right to self-identify in school. Even in the face of bullying and endless teasing from both school officials and students, Zoey determinedly continues to live her life as she is and tells her story in the hopes of helping others persevere in living their authentic lives.

Tickets for the special screening are free for the community. Reserve your tickets today! FB Event page HERE
