Grrrl Justice & Youth Panel

Thu, Feb 20, 2020 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

We are partnering with Visionary Justice Story Labs for a showing of Grrrl Justice, an experimental narrative short by filmmaker
Shontina Vernon. Grrrl Justice explores the rising rates of girls and queer youth of color in the juvenile justice system through the lenses of gender and sexuality.

Following the film we will join Black Youth Project 100 and the Ruth Ellis Center for a youth panel. Panelists will share about how the film's themes of surveillance and school to prison pipeline impact Detroit youth on a daily basis.
