Please join us in the Atrium Auditorium for First Friday Film @ First on October 5. A free dinner will be served at 5:45 pm and the FUS MOSES Ministry Team will present a provocative TED talk by former Boston Assistant DA, Adam Foss, who is featured in the CNN film “American Jail.” His talk is about the power of the prosecutor to redress racial disparities in the criminal justice system by offering alternatives to incarceration.
Responding to the film will be Dane County District Attorney, Ismael Ozanne, who is working to put these practices in place in Dane County. Is he succeeding in diverting more people of color from jail? If not, what obstacles does he face? Be ready with your questions!
There will be a children’s film, “My Neighbor Totoro,” at the same time, about 6:30 pm. Hope to see you there!
