EVENT: The Interview, film and panel discussion Hosted by The Racial Justice Committee
LOCATION: In-person @ Temple Israeli Center
DATE&TIME: Monday, 6/19 at 6:45 PM
From the Temple Israeli Center:
Please join TIC’s Racial Justice Committee in partnership with Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP) and Bend the Arc Riverdale Chapter for a screening of The Interview followed by a panel discussion. For incarcerated people serving life sentences in New York State, the parole board is their only hope of release. But how do you convince a group of strangers that you are more than the worst thing you ever did?
The short film, The Interview, asks viewers to confront their feelings about justice and mercy, while revealing the heavy toll our current system takes on incarcerated people and their families. The panel after the film will feature panelists who have been directly impacted by incarceration and the parole process in New York and the conversation will be moderated by Rabbi Gordon Tucker.
Register by Thursday, 6/15
