About this Event

Join NMPBS, the Society of Professional Journalists Rio Grande Chapter for a screening and discussion of Philly DA. Also presented in partnership with Bud Werner Memorial Library, Steamboat Springs, CO and the Kansas City Public Library.

In 2017, Philadelphia had one of the highest incarceration rates of any major city in the United States. And it’s become the epicenter of a historic experiment that could shape the future of prosecution in America for decades to come. When civil rights attorney Larry Krasner mounted a longshot campaign to become District Attorney—and won—he pledged to end mass incarceration by changing the culture of the criminal justice system from within. With unprecedented access to Krasner’s office, Philly D.A. explores over the course of eight episodes the most pressing social issues of our time—police brutality, the opioid crisis, gun violence, and mass incarceration—through the lens of one man attempting fundamental overhaul from within the system.

Following the film join a panel discussion moderated by journalists Megan Kamerick and Jerry Redfern board members of Society of Professional Journalists Rio Grande Chapter. Speakers include Larry Krasner (Philadelphia District Attorney), Rikki Lee Chavez Rikki-Lee, Capitol Counsel & Consulting, Santa Fe, .Yoni Brook (Producer/Director, Philly D.A.), Ted Passon (Producer/Director, Philly D.A.) , Nicole Salazar (Producer, Philly D.A.)
