PRISON KIDS SCREENING – SAMPLE INVITATION
You are invited!
Please join me/us on [INSERT DATE] at [INSERT TIME] at [INSERT LOCATION] for a screening and discussion of Prison Kids: Juvenile Justice in America, a documentary that takes a hard look at our nation’s juvenile justice system. Narrated by Academy Award-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe and featuring an introduction by Russell Simmons, this hour-long film explores America’s failed juvenile justice system through the eyes of young people and their families.
On any given day, more than 50,000 youth are languishing in youth prisons and other out-of-home confinement in the United States. It isn’t safe, it isn’t fair and it doesn’t work. Yet, states continue to spend an average of $150,000 per year to confine a youth and still devote the vast majority of their juvenile justice spending on youth prisons, spending over $5 billion per year.
