Join HBI and the UWM Nonprofit Management Alumni Chapter for the 2nd film of our inaugural Summer Film Series looking into all aspects of the world social sector and our place in this ever evolving landscape.
Join us for a screening of MILWAUKEE 53206, which Milwaukee Public Radio calls, “a powerful new documentary.” Through the lens of these intimate journeys, the film illustrates the high toll incarceration has taken on the hearts, souls and lives of so many Americans and their families.
MILWAUKEE 53206 chronicles the lives of those living in the ZIP code that incarcerates the highest percentage of black men in America, up to 62%. Through the intimate stories of three 53206 residents, we witness the high toll mass incarceration takes on individuals and families that make up the community. The film not only examines Milwaukee’s ZIP code 53206, but also illuminates the story of people from across the United States who live with the daily effects of mass incarceration.
Admission is free of charge — but pre-registration tickets are required due to limited seating.
Following the screening, we will be having a group discussion on our thoughts, views and what we can now do to support the children, parents and families affected by mass incarceration. Please join us!
