Screening of After Innocence - UT Austin

Friday March 13, Noon
After Innocence
The Social Work Council presents the film After Innocence. With the emergence of DNA evidence, the justice system is seeing a wave of reversed criminal convictions. But what happens to those who are set free, sometimes decades after being imprisoned for a crime they didn't commit? Jessica Sanders takes a close look at some of these people in this gripping documentary that's both a harsh criticism of the current judicial system and a touching look at those profoundly affected by it. Noon in The Utopia Theater at the School of Social Work.

This event is part of a month of student activism re: prison awareness.
