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

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.
