Our film KNOW HOW—written and acted by youth in our Foster Care Program—won an award for its collaboration with Participant Media for Branded Campaign for a TV Special Programming at the Cynopsis Media Social Good Awards on April 7, 2016.
With a goal of raising foster care youths’ voices for change, the Know How campaign launched in May 2015 to coincide with National Foster Care Month. Its content reached more than 1 million people, affected legislative change in California, collected more than 21,000 signatures on dedicated foster care petitions and pledges, and garnered almost 19,000 visits to a Know How foster care editorial series on TakePart.com.
KNOW HOW is now available on iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon.
