The Formerly Incarcerated Convicted People & Families Movement along with Brave New Films is inviting you to a virtual screening of the new short documentary, Racially Charged: America’s Misdemeanor Problem. Narrated by actor Mahershala Ali, the film was inspired by Harvard Law Professor Alexandra Natapoff’s book Punishment without Crime and explores the history behind our broken criminal legal system which charges 13 million Americans a year, mostly poor black and brown, with misdemeanors.
Following the 35-minute film viewing, we’ll hear from the president of Brave New Films, Robert Greenwald; father and musician, Chris Lollie (featured in the film), DeAnna Hoskins, President JLUSA, Ben Crump, Trial lawyer for Justice, Talitha L. LeFlouria, Assoc. Professor University of Virginia, and David Ayala, National Organizer, FICPFM.
The event will take place on April 21st at 8PM EST. RSVP here https://www.eventbrite.com/e/racially-charged-tickets-149936364703 to receive details on how to watch live over YouTube or Facebook.
