Friday, September 15, 7pm: screening Healing Justice
Directed by Shakti Butler Runtime: 1 hr.
Q&A with Jade Green from Youth Justice Coalition
Healing Justice explores the causes and consequences of the current North American justice system and its effect on marginalized communities. The film walks back through the history of violence that has led to our current system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community and generational level. This powerful documentary addresses the school-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform, and the importance of healing and restorative practices.
