Science Center, Lipton Lecture Hall (E110)
Dr. Shakti Butler, Film Director

Dr. Shakti Butler will lead the audience through an interactive viewing of her most recent film, Healing Justice. The film explores the causes and consequences of the current North American justice system and its effect on marginalized communities. The film walks back through the history of violence that has led to our current system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community and generational level. This powerful documentary addresses the school-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform and the importance of healing and restorative practices.
