Documentary & discussion on youth sentenced to life-in-prison

"Every child deserves a second chance" reads the tagline for the film "15 to Life: Kenneth's Story." The documentary follows the redemption struggle of a kid given life without parole at age 15 — something that happens unfortunately often. The Youth Sentencing & Reentry Project is screening the movie with free food and drink, and hosting a panel discussion with Congressman Tony Cardenas afterward. RSVP to info@ysrp.org.

Where: Friends Center, Rufus Jones room at 1501 Cherry St.

When: July 27, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.
