In this thought-provoking documentary, scholars, activists and politicians analyze the criminalization of African Americans and the U.S. prison boom.
Join EPIP DC throughout the year as we screen three groundbreaking documentaries – Before the Flood, 13th and Girl Rising. This three-part series explores themes that challenge systems of power, including environmental justice, discrimination and criminal justice reform, and girls’ education and empowerment. We hope these screenings will encourage us to lean into the uncomfortable and provide us with an opportunity to discuss issues we all care about.

- Light refreshments will be provided.
Bring a friend or colleague to join for an evening of film and conversation.
