Every day, youth in our community aging out of foster care struggle to navigate independent living and college transitions, often without the support of a family. How can we collectively rise up to support them? Join Amara, in partnership with Ballard’s Majestic Bay Theater, for a free film series featuring Seattle and Washington documentaries, every Tuesday in April. Each screening includes a post-film discussion.
