City of Brawley to host movie night event on Friday

BRAWLEY, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - Residents and children in Brawley will be enjoying a movie at the park on Friday night.

As well as learning the benefits of having an education and how to vote. 

Who says education can’t be fun? That is exactly what the City of Brawley will be doing with a movie night at the park.

“We will be teaching kids about the importance of staying in school and about being with their community and being with their families," said Rachel Fonseca, Parks and Recreation Manager.

The City of Brawley is teaming up with Los Amigos De La Comunidad and Succeeding Over Adversity for an educational movie night.

"This is actually the second time hosting and collaborating with Los Amigos De La Comunidad and also with the founder of Succeeding Over Adversity," shared Fonseca.

This will also teach kids to understand how to read a ballot and vote. 

“At times we forget somethings that are also important for the communities is civic engagement so we have to teach our young children to be part of the community so later they can be part of the voting property and making the decisions for our community and they can become our leaders of our community in the future so they have to have a taste of it when they are young our they are never going to know," said Eric Reyes, Executive Director of Los Amigos De La Comunidad.

The Executive Director of Los Amigos De La Comunidad said children will be given a ballot where they can vote for their favorite superhero.

"I want to let people know we come from an underprivileged community. We don't have a lot of resources and it’s not easy to send kids to college and I am here to provide an outlet," said Joseph Salazar, Founder of Succeeding Over Adversity.

The City of Brawley told us they will be showing the movie called Migration.

The city will be giving out school supplies at the event.
