Please join us in AUP 170 from 3:30-5:30pm for a screening of the 2016 documentary, Milwaukee 53206. The screening will be followed by a discussion about the film, incarceration in Milwaukee and its relationship to architecture and urbanism.

“Through the intimate stories of three 53206 residents, MILWAUKEE 53206 chronicles the high toll that excessive and racially-biased jail sentences have on individuals and families. The film examines Milwaukee’s ZIP code 53206 and illuminates the story of people from across the United States who live with the daily effects of unfair and excessively long jail sentences.”

Hosted by SARUP and the Vulnerability Studio led by Assistant Professor Trudy Watt.
