AMERICA'S MISDEMEANOR PROBLEM

October 30, 2021
11am - 1pm
Zoom Virtual Film

The Archives and History committee is hosting a viewing and discussion of the film.

Every year, 13 million people are charged with misdemeanors, and while those charges may seem small, they are anything but.

- Our misdemeanor system traps the innocent, punishes the poor, and deepens racial and economic inequality.
