Motel Drive Film Screening & Panel Discussion

September 24 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm MST

Please join us for a documentary film screening and a panel discussion on Sunday, September 24 in honor of National Recovery Month! We’ll be showing Motel Drive, a documentary film that follows the Shaw family for 7 years in Fresno, CA as they grapple with housing insecurity and addiction while trying to raise their young son. The event takes place at The Loft Cinema.

Communities throughout the U.S. are looking for solutions to end serious and persistent homelessness. Substance use disorders can be causes and consequences of homelessness, as well as co-occurring problems that complicate efforts to succeed in finding stable housing.

At this community event, the audience will have a chance to interact with nonprofit organizations that work in the field, learn more about what is being done in the Tucson area, and hear about solutions to end homelessness. We’ll also be celebrating recovery that is possible for all and limitless in scope.

The movie’s director, Brendan Geraghty, will join us for a panel discussion and Q&A after the screening. The other panelists are Tom Litwicki, CEO of Old Pueblo Community Services and Tonya Hamilton, Director/Tribal Liaison of the Governor’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family. Claudia Powell, Associate Director of the University of Arizona SIROW, will moderate the discussion.

The event is free and open to everybody. Please note that space is limited to first 100 participants and tickets are handed out upon arrival. We recommend arriving early to reserve your spot.
