Event description

Description

This Reentry in Motion program showcases a documentary that not only looks at the overcrowding of the jail system in Philadelphia, but centers on Michelle Alexander’s theory in her groundbreaking book, The New Jim Crow, through the rise of the drug war and “tough on crime” policies. The film also dissects the rise of incarceration in the U.S., illustrates how the emerging Occupy Movement offers hope for change, and explores possible reforms and solutions to end mass incarceration. Reentry material and handouts provided.
