The FASD Project is Coming to Denver Feb 12-13

The FASD project is a film seeking to rapidly increase awareness of the risks of alcohol consumption in pregnancy within a short period of time, given the significant increase in alcohol consumption since the onset of the global pandemic.

This film aims to bring awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) and provide detailed scientific information on prevention, while aiming to start discussions about solutions to current problems facing the community. Through the course of our film journey, producers will be interviewing top scientists, clinicians, psychologists, lawyers, directors of Public Health offices and health institutes, and most importantly, parents and family members of individuals with a FASD.

They will follow ‘a day in the life’ of those living with and impacted by a FASD to present to the viewers how living with an FASD shows up in day-to-day life.

Focusing on impacted individuals who are doing well in addition to individuals who are not faring as well due to incarceration, homelessness or major mental health challenges exacerbated by FASD, this film is aim to share your lived experiences. 

As the Colorado Chapter of the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome  (NOFAS), Illuminate Colorado is encouraging anyone willing to share their experiences to participate in this important opportunity. The FASD Project is tentatively scheduled to visit in the greater Denver  to engage with people willing on Friday February 12th and Saturday February 13th.
