The documentary The Homestretch will air on PBS’ Independent Lens on April 13 at 10 PM. Member Elizabeth Hemmerdinger is one of the associate producers and member Laverne Berry worked on the production as an attorney. The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and build a future. Each of these smart, ambitious teenagers will surprise, inspire and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness as they work to complete their education while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age.
