FINDING KIND displays the often-vicious way females treat each other, bringing to light the serious effects these experiences can have on girls’ self-esteem and personal growth, including depression, eating disorders, drug use, alcoholism, attempted suicide and actual suicide. The bullying that Lauren Parsekian experienced when she was in middle school inspired her to found the nonprofit Kind Campaign with her friend, Molly Stroud. On September 1, 2009, they began a month-and-a-half-long journey across the country. Crowded into a minivan, they traveled more than 10,000 miles collecting stories from hundreds of women, confirming that “girl-against-girl” crime is a universal issue. With their new insight and perspective, the filmmakers were inspired to get their film out to the world and create change. - The Finding Kind Campaign
