Screening and discussion of “Racially Charged: America’s Misdemeanor Problem.”

On Wednesday, October 20, join the ACLU for its next virtual event in its racial justice series hosted by the Palm Beach Chapter of the ACLU of Florida, a screening and panel discussion of “Racially Charged: America’s Misdemeanor Problem.”

Misdemeanor convictions are the “front line” of discriminatory justice in the United States. This short documentary film profiles the unequal use of misdemeanors nationally, and our expert panelists will discuss their experiences on the ground in one Florida county.
