BRAVEMAKER AND CHAN ZUCKERBERG INITIATIVE PRESENT SCREENING OF
HBO’S “THE SENTENCE” AT FOX THEATER ON APRIL
WHAT: BraveMaker and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative are hosting a special FREE screening of the documentary, HBO’s “The Sentence,” a film about Cindy Shank, a mother of three serving a 15-year sentence in federal prison for her peripheral involvement with a Michigan drug ring years earlier. This intimate portrait of mandatory minimum drug sentencing's devastating consequences, chronicled by Cindy's brother, Rudy Valdez, follows Cindy and her family over the course of a decade. Watch the trailer here.
WHY: April is Second Chances Month: an opportunity to discuss the impact of incarceration on our communities, and how we can support those who are re-entering society. Founded in 2018, BraveMaker is a local organization on a mission to elevate brave voices that speak to the need for social justice, equality and diversity. CZI’s Criminal Justice Reform program, launched in 2017, supports efforts to safely reduce incarceration, provide fair chances for those impacted, and to lift up the voices of people closest to the problem.
