Please join us in celebrating our student’s thought-provoking work from First Vote, a series of youth-produced short films and still images using the vehicle of storytelling to explore issues of importance to young people as they ready themselves to cast their first ballot in 2020. The event will include an exhibition of student photographs, a screening of their films, and a facilitated panel discussion with our young filmmakers.

In addition, we will screen Brave New Films’ short documentary, Healing Trauma: Beyond Gangs and Prisons, which dives into the inner struggle of former gang members whose childhood trauma inevitably led to an anger that resulted in a criminal lifestyle and landed them in prison. Voter registration forms will be available for audience members not yet registered and interested in voting.
