This film—created through Villanova University’s Social Justice Documentary Program—recounts the harsh realities of those serving life sentences and the effect on individuals, families, and communities.
The film screening and panel discussion will deepen our understanding and assist in facilitating resilience and wellbeing to people who are currently or have been incarcerated. SJI is committed to advancing knowledge around its core value that all people deserve equal access to opportunities and resources that help them reach their greatest potential. In anticipation of SJI’s National Conference in May 2020, the panel will highlight how courage and compassion are integral to enacting social justice, and can be embodied by all with conscious efforts.
This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Child and Family Wellbeing at Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research (GSSWSR) for a maximum of two CEU credit hours. GSSWSR, as a CSWE-accredited School of Social Work, is a pre-approved provider of continuing education for social workers, professional counselors, and marriage and family therapists in Pennsylvania and many other states.
This event is free and open to the public.
