“Returning Citizens” The Documentary Film Premier
July 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
“Returning Citizens” focuses on a passionate group of individuals who are looking for a second chance – or perhaps a chance they never had to begin with. Taking place in Southeast Washington, DC, the film offers a humanizing perspective on a community that has been negatively impacted by mass incarceration. From freshly returning individuals struggling to rebuild their lives, to community leaders working to end the on-going cycle of crime and violence, the stories unveiled in “Returning Citizens” offer proof that change is possible when the right opportunities are presented.
It is our objective to highlight and bring into focus specific issues associated with mass incarceration and discuss strategic solutions to problems pertaining to re-entry, recidivism and most of all public safety. We have chosen you as our special guest because you are uniquely qualified to support our effort to bring hope to the forgotten population of returning citizens and their families. Please support our effort to serve humanity by joining us for a landmark evening of enlightenment.
The premier will feature a screening of the one hour documentary followed by a thirty minute panel discussion titled, “Hope for Public Safety.” Visit us online at www.returningcitizensdocumentary.com to view the trailer.
