Imprisonment is a brutal and costly response to crime that traumatizes incarcerated people, their families, and communities. Lavette Mayes, Jason Hernandez, and Johnny Perez know all too well how devastating and life-changing incarceration is. Watch the premiere of three animated films that expose America’s broken criminal justice system through their eyes, followed by a discussion in which they will share more about their journeys and why we must end mass incarceration.
