Join Us for Chesa Boudin in “Beyond Bars”

Chesa_BoudinOn Thursday, April 11th, from 6:30 to 8pm, the Criminal Justice and DEI teams welcome you to a viewing of a portion of Beyond Bars, a film about former San Francisco District Attorney, Chesa Boudin’s life and attempt to reform the criminal justice system. The film screening will be followed by a discussion. See the IMDb synopsis of the film below and JOIN HERE! .

With more than two million Americans currently in jails and prisons, BEYOND BARS is as much an examination of our fraying democracy and legacy of white supremacy, as it is a roadmap for how the power of local, grassroots organizing can restore the lives, families, and communities being destroyed by the ongoing cycle of inter-generational incarceration. Former San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin’s story offers a dual lens into the personal trauma of mass incarceration and the tireless battle toward progressive reform within the United States criminal injustice system. Chesa is only 14 months old when condemned to seeing his parents-members of the Weather Underground-behind bars for the entirety of his childhood, a timeline that is interwoven with his historic pursuit to change the system with which he is intimately and painfully linked.
