“Incarcerating US” World Premiere and Panel Discussion
September 15, 2016 @ 2:30 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

The Prisons and Justice Initiative at Georgetown University is thrilled to be hosting the world premiere showing of “Incarcerating US,” a feature length documentary that exposes America’s prison problem and explores ways to unshackle the Land of the Free through vital criminal justice reforms.  With 2.3 million people behind bars, the U.S. has the largest prison population in the history of the world.  Incarcerating US tells the story of America’s broken criminal justice system through the eyes of those who created it, those who have suffered through it, and those who are fighting to change it.  Watch the trailer.

The premiere event will take place in the Hart Auditorium at the Georgetown University Law Center (located on the first floor of McDonough Hall).  It will begin with a reception at 6:30 PM, and the movie screening will start at 7:20 PM.  The viewing will be followed by a panel discussion with leading experts on criminal justice reform.  The discussion will be available on alive webcast so that everyone around the country can join the conversation.
