Free screening of Al Jazeera America’s film! Space is limited. Please RSVP at link above. The film features testaments from youth incarcerated as adults, who endured physical and sexual violence while in prison. It also shares the stories of families, who open up about what life was like when their child was incarcerated and how it changed after they were released. State Representative Harvey Santana (D-Detroit) was interviewed for this documentary and discussed the dangers that arise from housing youth in adult prisons. This 30 minute film will be introduced by Rep. Stephanie Chang (D-Detroit) and followed by an interactive panel discussion exploring solutions to youth incarceration.
