College Behind Bars: A Film Screening and Discussion

April 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

College Behind Bars: A Film Screening and Discussion

The Justice Club of Santa Fe College is hosting a film screening and panel discussion sponsored by the SF Center for Applied Ethics and Humanities. This event features clips from the documentary College Behind Bars and a panel of speakers and experts with direct knowledge of the carceral system. This event kicks off the “Free to Learn” Symposium, an event designed to increase public understanding of incarceration in Florida, its impact on our communities, and the role that education can play in reducing rates of recidivism and promoting safer, stronger communities. Panelists for this discussion speak to the community about their experiences with incarceration and their attempts to seek educational opportunities.

Funding for this symposium is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with Santa Fe College. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
