Join NASW-MA's Criminal Justice Committee for a screening of the documentary 13TH and panel discussion featuring clinicians, researchers, and persons with lived experience in the criminal justice system.

 

The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary 13TH refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will gain an understanding of how mass incarceration disproportionately effects people of color.
  • Participants will increase their awareness of how policies contribute to mass incarceration.
  • Participants will improve their understanding of how to utilize social work values and skills to impact positive change.

Parking is in the Parking Garage, see link here for map: (Parking Area S on the campus map).  DMF Auditorium is on the West Campus, Building #15. 

 

This is a FREE Continuing Education program.

Approved for 2.5 CEUs.
