Voices of Reentry-Film Screening and Panel Discussion
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Alpha Emergence Behavioral Health is pleased to host the first Minnesota screening of the documentary "Voices of Reentry" on June 1 at 7PM. Each year, over 600,000 people return from jail or prison to our communities, where they face countless barriers to employment, housing, and reintegration. The film explores the challenges of reentry and the role communities can play in reducing these barriers. Viewers will hear from four storytellers–George, Shaquan, Sing and Armando–who share portions of their life stories, illuminating the common threads that run through the experiences of many of the over two million people incarcerated in the U.S. This event will include a screening of the film (40 minutes), followed by a conversation between the audience and one or more of the film’s storytellers, local providers of reentry support services, and formerly incarcerated members of our community. Tickets are free to the event, but we are accepting donations at the time you reserve your ticket, either through Eventbrite or via a direct, tax deductible donation on our website. Any donations will DIRECTLY support men and women as they reintegrate.
