"Juvies" Film Showing, 5/13 Oakland

Eastside Arts Alliance2277 International BlvdOakland, CA
Come out next Friday the 13th to witness and collaborate. Join with local
activists, youth organizers, and formerly incarcerated community members
in a moderated post-film discussion and strategizing session.

California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) is hosting this event which will
focus on the criminalization of youth. "Juvies" is a 66 minute
documentary about youth tried as adults and sentenced to life in prison
without the possibility of parole. The film forces us to ask questions
about the failures of the juvenile "justice" system and questions
justice itself.

The event is free, will have Spanish translation,is wheelchair accessible, and
open to the public. Please join us next Friday the 13th from 7-9 at East Side
Arts Alliance in Oakland!

Here's the film's website, so you can get a sneak preview on the powerful stories
the film shares with us:
