Join us for a talk about a new film and its issues: Women in Blue airs Feb 8th and will free stream from Feb 9th to March 8th on www. pbs.org

RSVP to: https://bit.ly/3jkVtX6

WOMEN IN BLUE looks at policing from a virtually unseen angle — that of women officers fighting to reform the Minneapolis Police Department. It offers an unprecedented view into the inner workings of the MPD, chronicling a department—and a community—grappling with racism and a troubled history of police misconduct long before an MPD officer killed George Floyd. The film reveals the limitations of police reform through incremental change and asks a critical question. Could increased gender equity and more women — especially Black women — contribute to greater public safety?

The film will air on PBS February 8th at 10 PM EST and then free stream from Feb 9th through March 8th on www.pbs.org.

See the trailer here, and to get more info on the film.

Join filmmaker Deirdre Fishel with lawyer Ganesha Martin and Dr. Mangai Natarajan of John Jay College in a discussion of the film and the issues it raises. Your RSVP will be followed by a zoom link to the conversation.

View the Women in Blue on PBS, then join the conversation Feb 23rd at 5 PM.
