Collaboration at Work

The Justice On Trial film festival grew out of a conversation between award-winning author Michelle Alexander and Susan Burton, founder of A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project.

Family and friends of people caught up in the burgeoning prison-industrial complex, often for victimless crimes, know only too well the pain and injustice—the jailhouse beatings, the solitary confinement, the stop-and-frisk humiliations, the selective prosecutions with bad plea bargains, and the unreasonably long sentences—that their loved ones suffer. They are painfully familiar with the school-to-prison pipeline that puts so many youth, particularly those of color, at risk. But their voices are often unheard beyond their own communities.

Susan’s and Michelle’s discussion led to a New York Times opinion piece about how to better expose this broken system for what it is. But Susan continued to wonder whether even more could be done to change public perceptions.

She didn’t wonder long. Instead, she got busy and recruited a team that put on the gloriously successful First Annual Justice on Trial Film Festival in 2013 at Loyola Marymount University, in conjunction with the Bellarmine Forum.

The work to expose injustice and explore solutions continues as we head into our 4th Annual Justice on Trial Film Festival at Loyola Marymount University on September 17-18, 2016.
