Movies That Matter Beacon presents "Immigrant Prisons"

Doors Open at 7pm the film promptly at 7:30pm.  

Each year, the U.S. government locks up roughly 440,000 immigrants in over 200 immigrant prisons. These prisons have grown into a highly privatized, lucrative and abusive industry that profits off misery. This documentary explores the conditions inside these prisons; exposing substandard medical care, widespread physical and sexual abuse, virtual slave labor working conditions and more. These abuses happen behind closed doors with little to no oversight. This film, created in partnership with advocates for detainee rights, is shining a light on a particularly dark corner of the American justice system.

Discussion will take place after each film.    Free, donations are accepted.

Date:Monday, Jul 16th, 2018
Time:7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
