Join the New York Law School Impact Center for Public Interest Law, Restorative Justice Initiative, and Brownsville Think Tank Matters, Inc. for a special screening of the documentary CIRCLE UP, introduced by Professor Susan Abraham.
The film tells the powerful story of a mother reaching out to her teenage son’s killer to offer a chance at forgiveness and a way for both of them to move forward. They partner with other mothers of murdered children to help young people in their community break the chain of violence and revenge.
The film will be followed by a Q and A with the filmmaker Julie Mallozzi and legendary restorative justice practitioner Janet Connors, as well as a chance to participate in a restorative circle.
Light dinner will be served. The event is free and open to all.
