During this month's exploration of what it means to be an American, we will watch the powerful documentary film 13th, written and directed by Ava DuVernay. The film examines the criminalization of African Americans throughout U.S. history, including through modern mass incarceration. Tyra Patterson, Community Outreach Director for the Ohio Justice & Policy Center, will join Jodi Elowitz, HHC's Director of Education & Engagement, and Justin Kirschner, Associate Director of the Jewish Community Relations Council, to facilitate the discussion. Patterson will share her work with the Ohio Justice & Policy Center and her perspective on the film as someone who was formerly incarcerated, and Kirschner will share how we can get involved in making change. Register below for what will be a thought-provoking discussion.

Presented in partnership with the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and the Ohio Justice & Policy Center.

The film is free on Netflix and YouTube.

U.S. Rating: TV-MA For mature audiences. May not be suitable for ages 17 and under.
