At the YASP Office, 2231 N Broad St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19121
Join the Youth Art and Self Empowement Project for a fundraiser & screening of our new award-winning film, "Stolen Dreams II: Breaking the Cycle of Youth Trauma, Violence, & Imprisonment"!
The 25-minute film explores the intersections of violence and incarceration in young people's lives, and pushes audience members to think about whether locking young people in cages will make our communities safer. Featuring interviews with YASP members, poetry by young men and women in the Philadelphia jails, and stories of young people whose lives have been tragically cut short by violence, the film is truly a must-see for people everywhere. These things are apart of a vicious cycle so it's up to us to make things right for our communities.
This night will consist of a couple performances, light refreshments, a chance to talk to YASP organizers about our new film and our work.
$5-20 suggested donation at the door.
