About this Event
On MLK Day we take a moment to reflect on the life and lasting legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. This year we want you to commit to finding a role in advancing his belief that we should all be free. Please join the NAACP Cleveland Branch and our criminal justice reform partners for a private screening of Just Mercy, based on the true story of one young attorney’s commitment to fighting to get an innocent black man freed from death row. Stay for the panel discussion following the film to learn more about what you can do to advocate for change in our system. Partners include: Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival, ACLU, Alliance for Safety and Justice, Cuyahoga County Office of Reentry, Third Space Action Labs. Media Sponsor Radio ONE Cleveland.
