Voices of Gainesville: Criminal Justice

"Voices of Gainesville: Facing the Facts, Sharing the Stories" will be at the Hipp Cinema on Monday, September 10, October 1, and November 5 at 7:30 p.m.

The “Understanding Racial Disparities in Alachua County” report detailed disparities in employment, criminal justice, education, housing and poverty in Gainesville. How do we as a community address this?

Storytelling is a powerful art form creating connections and understanding. SelfNarrate is hosting a storytelling series to give a face and a voice to the statistics of those most affected by these disparities. Community leaders will also tell their personal stories, and of the challenges faced in addressing systemic racism. Through these stories we can build bridges and begin to work together.

9/10: Housing and Transportation
10/1: Criminal Justice
11/5: Education

Doors at 6:30 p.m., starts at 7 p.m.
