The Hate U Give? Tell me more.
The Hate U Give is an exceptional book, by Angie Thomas, turned feature film that will be releasing in theaters this month (October 2018). Our plan is to buy out a theater at Regal Stonefield Stadium as we can and we need your help! We are hosting a theater buyout of THUG on Friday, October 12, 2018. We’ll invite teens, their families, and other community members falling in line with our belief that social justice is relevant to and vital for all.
Who will you invite?
We will invite select teens and influential community advocates who may not otherwise be able to see the movie.

What’s Hold the Line?
Hold the Line (HTL) is an internationally-reaching digital magazine for parents and educators who are champions for change. HTL started because as the mom of two Black boys, I found myself in perpetual grief over police violence and the killing of unarmed Black people. You can learn more about HTL here and read more about my personal beliefs surrounding THUG here.
In addition to the magazine, we also host the Charlottesville-based Coffee + Egg Drive benefiting The Haven, as well as host a number of free community events for families.
You can also use the link above to purchase a ticket to attend. Please note the number of attendees with your party when you purchase.
