Film Event: 'Juvies'
Challenge the criminalization of our youth!

On Friday, May 13th at the Eastside Arts Alliance in Oakland, The California Coalition for Women Prisoners will host a screening of "Juvies" (Dir. Leslie Neale, 66 min. USA), a film about youth tried as adults and sentenced to outrageously long sentences.

The film forces us to ask questions about the failures of the juvenile justice system and questions about justice itself.

The California Coalition for Women Prisoners regularly visits young women and trans folk sentenced as adults for crimes they were involved in before they were 18. Some of these people are sentenced to life without the possibility of parole (LWOP). Several women CCWP visits are featured in the film.

This event is being organized in collaboration with women organizing inside prisons in California, and the evening will include some of their writing.

The film will be followed by a moderated discussion. Come join with community groups, youth organizers, formerly incarcerated community members, and local activists to share ideas on how to work together to stop the criminalization of youth, particularly youth of color, to learn about the recent SB9 legislation, to meet with different groups, and get updates on current youth justice campaigns and connect with continuing actions.

The event is from 7-9pm and is free, wheelchair accessible, and open to the public. Please join us!
