RSVP: "Racially Charged" watch party featuring Rep. Karen Bass
Join us on Tuesday, July 20 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT for a screening of the film "Racially Charged: America's Misdemeanor Problem."
We'll be joined by Representative Karen Bass (CA-37), MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting, and Robert Greenwald, founder and president of Brave New Films, the organization that produced the film.
Narrated by Oscar winner Mahershala Ali, the film uncovers the history of racial inequality in our criminal justice system, dating back to Reconstruction, which charges 13 million Americans a year, mostly poor, Black and brown, with misdemeanors. Misdemeanors comprise approximately 80% of all arrests in America and often become the stage for the acts of violent policing we are seeing.
