On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

Event Description

Free screening and an optional guided discussion of the IndieFlix documentary “Finding Kind.”

Some background about the latest documentary to be featured as part of our #TanagerTalks series:

Filmmakers Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson set out on a 10,000 mile cross-country journey of discovery and education, interviewing hundreds of females across America about girl-agaist-girl bullying. By entering school hallways and talking with hundreds of students, they learn how bullying is evolving and the life-threatening impact it can have. The journey is sprinkled with hysterical moments as Lauren and Molly attempt to conquer the road and everything America has to offer. While there are plenty of fun moments, their emotional roller coaster around the country reveals shockingly raw and personal stories. With the goal of establishing a national school program for girls, Lauren and Molly hope to put an end to the hate and FIND KIND.

What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, a multi-platform movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities around the world.
