Milwaukee 53206 Film Screening

April 19, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


This year’s Social Work Macro Practice Colloquium will be a screening of the film MILWAUKEE 53206. A panel discussion with cast members will follow the film. Please join us.

MILWAUKEE 53206 tells the story of those affected by mass incarceration in America’s most incarcerated ZIP code. Through the powerful journeys of Beverly Walker, Dennis Walton and Chad Wilson we witness how incarceration shapes their lives, families and community. These intimate stories reveal how a community fights to move forward even as a majority of its young men end up in prison. The film examines how decades of poverty, unemployment, and a lack of opportunity has contributed to the crisis of mass incarceration in communities across the nation.
