Free Screening: LIKE- Documentary on Finding Balance in our Digital World

Join us Tuesday March 16 @ 6:30pm ET / 3:30pm PT for a virtual screening and panel of LIKE a Documentary about the impact of social media on our lives.

LIKE is a film-based education program exploring the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. The goal of the film is to inspire us to self-regulate. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share, and care … but is that what’s really happening? We will be showing the film, which will promptly be followed by a panel discussion and include access to further resources and materials.
This free event is made possible with generous support from the Bradley Family Foundation and Casco Bay CAN. Hosted by Freeport Middle School and Freeport Community Services. View the details and register below!
