Social Engagement

Tre Maison Dasan compels viewers to recognize that children’s insights are crucial to creating effective change within the complex systems that effect them. By empowering Tre, Maison and Dasan to share their experiences, they can inspire others to share as well, elevating voices and initiating a dialogue by those affected most directly.

Screenings of the film in educational, institutional, programmatic, and community contexts - supported by structured viewing guides - are a powerful way to have important conversations and share needed lessons around these complex and overlooked systems.

And yet this is only one facet of an ambitious, integrated outreach campaign that aims to amplify the knowledge and experience in Tre, Maison, and Dasan’s stories.

We are working to go beyond the conversation and create new levels of awareness through sustained and productive discourse, and translate these into real, measurable shifts in culture.

By partnering with organizations across multiple sectors to use the film, as well as the additional footage that didn’t make the final cut, and using a framework of qualitative data and response capture we can also provide new insights into the overlapping complexities of criminal justice and incarceration, family and education, community and child welfare, and much more.

We are now seeking further partnerships to expand and support this work, both programmatically and financially.

Please contact us with any questions or if you’re interested in screening the film and working with us!
