About this Event

Join Tacoma Meaningful Movies for a screening and community conversation about "Philly D.A."

This powerful film will provide a jumping off point for a deep discussion about mass incarceration and the systems and structures that can protect the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the poor and disenfranchised.

Film Description: 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 long shot 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.

Schedule for Friday March 26:

6:30PM Join us for a screening of "Philly D.A." on OVEE

7:30PM Join us for a community conversation about the film on Zoom
