Film Screening: Echoes of Incarceration

September 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm

It is estimated that nearly 1 in 10 Nebraska children have had a parent in jail or prison at some point in their childhood. As the discussion over criminal justice reform continues in Nebraska, we want to know: What about the children who are left behind?

Join us for a special screening of Echoes of Incarceration, an award-winning documentary initiative produced by youth who have experienced parental incarceration. The project explores the issue of mass incarceration and its effects on families, and creates documentary films told from the life experiences of the filmmakers themselves.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with local experts to learn more about parental incarceration in Nebraska.


Thank you to our co-sponsors for this event: the ACLU of NebraskaBridges to HopeDefy Ventures, and the Mental Health Association of Nebraska.
