No Place for Kids: A Documentary About Youth Incarceration – June 6

Join us on June 6th for the premiere of a new youth-created documentary titled “No Place for Kids.” The film was created by Project NIA interns and Francis Parker High School seniors Nina Friend and Keely Mullen. Below is a description of the film in their words:

No Place For Kids is a documentary that features two girls’ interpretation of the juvenile justice system in Chicago. The film combines a series of interviews and archival footage, with a panel including, among others, Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, Bernardine Dohrn, founder of the Children & Family Justice Center and current Professor of Law at Northwestern University School of Law, Juan Rivera, a recent exoneree who was wrongfully convicted as a youth, and young men who have themselves been affected by Chicago’s criminal (in)justice system.”
