Unpack: Incarceration, part 3

Following Second Sunday meal, Truth & Justice will host our third event as Sean Goode of Choose 180 addresses Youth & Incarceration.

What do we need to know to change the direction for youth facing incarceration?

CHOOSE 180 will provide an immersive presentation on juvenile justice that will allow each of us to understand the interconnected nature of our experiences and how our community plays a pivotal role in the decisions we make and the direction of our life. We will learn the tools that have empowered over 2000 youth and young adults to commit to a new direction for their life and leave with a new perspective on our role in justice reform.

Unpack: Incarceration Pt 1

Join us, Sunday October 14th, to watch and discuss the documentary "The IF Project", a collaboration between Law Enforcement, currently and previously incarcerated adults, and community partners focused on intervention, prevention and reduction in incarceration and recidivism. This project is based on the question: If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?

Prior to the movie starting at 12:30PM, a simple lunch will be available at noon. Following the movie, there will be a time to hear from one of the women featured in this documentary, and to have discussion in small groups. It promises to be an impactful afternoon.

Childcare is available and will provide age-appropriate activities that allow the kids to engage in the topic of incarceration.

This event is FREE to all, though donations will be accepted to help cover the cost of the movie, food, and childcare. Tickets found here.
