    “Join us in viewing some films about the History of Mass Incarceration in the US and discussing how it affects us in our lives today. Whether you have or haven’t been part of the criminal justice system in Arizona it’s a multi-million dollar industry in this state and me, you or members of your family are targets. It’s time to break this cycle of the poor and people of color being used to feed a machine. Going to jail / prison shouldn’t be a right of passage for our young. Let’s watch, listen and share our experiences and learn how to become a voice to stop MASS INCARCERATION.

    Food will be provided – Please RSVP call or text 5203328235.”
