  • NEW! “Public Plea” screening

What if your life hinged on decisions you made as a teenager? That’s the question raised by “Public Plea,” a new documentary film produced by Professor Ed Madison and a team of SOJC alums and current students. The film explores the dilemma facing Ricky Gaters, a young Black male, and many others incarcerated under Measure 11; a mandatory sentencing law passed decades ago amid the nation’s “tough-on-crime” era. Evidence indicates that Measure 11 disproportionately impacts communities of color. 

A special on-campus free screening of “Public Plea” is scheduled for Monday, February 1, 2022, at 6 pm in Allen 141. Limited seating requires that you register at: http://publicpleafilm.com. More information about the project is available at: http://publicplea.net
