Film screening with Just Kids
Join Just Kids to watch the movie JUVIES on August 22nd from 4:00-6:00 PM at the Central Branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, located at 400 Cathedral Street Baltimore, MD 21201. Snacks will be provided.
JUVIES, narrated and directed by celebrity and former juvenile offender Mark Wahlberg, is a look inside California's Eastlake Juvenile Hall. Eastlake is the largest youth facility in the country with juveniles who have committed the most violent, serious and chronic offenses. The film introduces the viewer to a dozen youth offenders serving maximum sentences for crimes in which they were involved. This shows the alarming rate at which youth enter the adult system for various offenses and highlights that the system incarcerates youth more to prevent future surges in violence, rather than for crimes individual youth actually have committed.
