Just Kids Film Screening

03/05/2012

Join Just Kids to watch the movie Juvies on March 5 from 6:00-8:00 PM at 2640 St. Paul Street, Baltimore, MD 21218. This documentary looks into the eyes and souls of children prosecuted and imprisoned for in the adult criminal justice system.

Juvies, narrated and directed by celebrity and former juvenile offender Mark Wahlberg, is a look inside California's Eastlake Juvenile Hall. Eastlake is the largest youth facility in the country with juveniles who have committed the most violent, serious and chronic offenses. The film introduces the viewer to a dozen youth offenders serving maximum sentences for crimes in which they were involved. This shows the alarming rate at which youth enter the adult system for various offenses and highlights that the system incarcerates youth more to prevent future surges in violence, rather than for crimes individual youth actually have committed.
 
Afterwards, stick around for a discussion led by a youth leader from the Just Kids Partnership.
