Big News! Los Angeles Premiere
We are excited to announce that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa—a courageous education reformer recently selected by President Obama to head the Democratic National Convention—will be the keynote speaker at the Los Angeles TEACHED premiere on Wednesday, July 11th.
This special event will bring together teachers, parents and advocates for education equality to discuss initiatives underway in L.A. (and statewide) aimed at making teaching a more accountable and joyful profession. Thanks to the Mayor's office, Communities for Teaching Excellence and its founder Yolie Flores for helping us organize this special screening.
More details will be posted soon. Meanwhile, read this great op-ed by Mayor Villaraigosa, save the date, and email email@example.com if you simply can't wait to get a ticket.

How to Host a TEACHED Screening... the movie!
As you may know, the short film format of TEACHED was designed for interactive, community-based screenings, in which guest speakers and the audience have ample time to discuss the issues and ways to engage in the fight for education equality.
To plan your own TEACHED screening, watch our new How to Host video (ok, not exactly a movie), read our screening guide [PDF], and finally email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, to get started:
