Please join SCJR for a screening of the documentary short film "The Long Shadow of Incarceration's Stigma.

The United States imprisons more people than any other nation in the world. An estimated 700,000 people are released from prison in the United States every year. Where do they all go? How do they find employment, housing, education and reunite with their families? Photographers Jessica Dimmock, Ashley Gilbertson, Ron Haviv and Ed Kashi teamed with Supervising Producer Kimberly Soenen and Think Outside the Cell to produce a multimedia documentary short film about the experience of reentry and the stigma formerly incarcerated persons endure while reentering society after release from prison in the United States. Learn more at
