Our former office mate and outreach consultant extraordinaire Sonya Childress is helping organize the Reel Justice Film Conference at Lehman College in the Bronx. This free two-day conference (April 29 & 30), hosted by Working Films, Andrus Family Fund and Lehman College’s Black Legacy, features great films and speakers that will spur conversation and action on international and domestic models of community reconciliation as a response to police brutality and violence against women. Tami Gold and Iris Baez will be there with Every Mother’s Son (POV 2004).
