What’s New


The Hillsborough County Community Alliance is sponsoring a documentary about the American Child Welfare System called “Tough Love”
January 28, 2015 – 7 pm – Admission is free
Tampa Theatre, Franklin Street Mall 711
North Franklin Street, Tampa FL 33602

 ”The film offers a rare look at the inner workings of the American child welfare system, Tough Love chronicles the lives of two parents—one in Seattle and one in New York City—as each fights to be reunited with children taken out of their custody. Through intimate, verité footage of both families, we witness first-hand the complex and daunting bureaucracy of America’s family courts. Moreover, we come to understand the powerful role poverty and prejudice play in keeping parents and children apart— and the challenges parents must overcome in order to put their families back together.”
