Programs

On September 20, 2017, CFLS will host an Open House and Fundraiser with an opportunity to meet CFLS staff, receive program highlights and speak with returning citizens.

 

It will also include a screening and discussion of the documentary “Returning Citizens” by Saffron Cassaday. Returning Citizens focuses on a passionate group of individuals who are looking for a second chance – or perhaps a chance they never had to begin with. Taking place in Southeast Washington, DC, the film offers a humanizing perspective on a community that has been negatively impacted by mass incarceration. From freshly returning individuals struggling to rebuild their lives, to community leaders working to end the on-going cycle of crime and violence, the stories unveiled in “Returning Citizens” offer proof that change is possible when the right opportunities are presented. Along with the documentary, you will have the opportunity to speak with formally incarcerated woman to give you a more intimate understanding of their lived experience.

 

Fishbowl discussion following the screening will give everyone the opportunity to ask questions, get answers and actively participate while brainstorming the ways we can further assist our returning citizens.

 

This event will raise funds that will directly help us provide job readiness and other tools that allow the women to find sustainable income, reunite with their families, and supportive housing. While the experience is free, our recommended donation is $50.00

 

Hors d'oeuvres and wine will be provided throughout the event.

 

Limited seating available. Please reserve your ticket today. To register, click here
