HEALING JUSTICE Film Premiere and Community Conversation
PIGOTT AUDITORIUM, Seattle University Campus
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

The world is crying out for healing -- healing of inequitable actions and of unfair, unjust systems. And, equally important, the world is crying out for the deep internal healing that allows us to more effectively come together to educate, organize and work towards dreaming and building a world that works for everyone.

This event is a community film screening and dialogue that is part of a multi-city tour of the new documentary film HEALING JUSTICE. This three-tiered event includes a: I) Film Screening and Community Conversation, II) Healing Justice Workshop, and III) Healing Justice Circle. Use the drop-down menu to register for each component.

I. FILM PREMIERE AND FACILITATED COMMUNITY CONVERSATION with Dr. Shakti Butler, film producer/director

This film asks America to talk about the causes and consequences of our current system of justice.  The film explores:

  • What is justice, really?

  • Why is healing such an important component of justice?

  • How do our current structures discount and dehumanize young people of color as well as our poorest and most vulnerable citizens?

  • How can we transform our ideas, structures, and culture to produce a new story that popularizes the truth of our connected humanity?

  • How can we work towards a vibrant future where belonging, not bothering, is the norm     what would that look, sound and feel like?

Designed for dialogue, the film will address the youth-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform, and will highlight various healing methodologies. We want to support a national dialogue that investigates and considers alternatives to our current punitive model of justice.

The film screening is Thursday, October 26, 2017, from 6:00p-8:30p in the Pigott Auditorium at Seattle University.
General Admission: $15 minimum (pay more if you can to support access to this event)
Group Discount Rate: $10 (each for five or more registered together)
Student/Community Organizer: $5 minimum (pay more if you can to support access to this event)

Copies of the film will be available for purchase at this event.

II. HEALING JUSTICE WORKSHOP [Select from the 'date' drop-down menu]
This workshop is intended to help participants deepen their understanding of the systemic injustices in the justice system, consider alternatives, and participate in movements to change public perceptions and public policy.  Using clips from her new film, Healing Justice, Dr. Shakti Butler will guide participants through the major questions that the film asks:

  • How does each of us experience trauma and then pass it on?

  • What is justice?
  • What can healing look like?
  • How can we meet the needs of the victim, the victimizer, and their respective communities?
  • How can we embrace both compassion and accountability?

    What are the words we can speak, the stories we can tell, the experiences we can share that will help us build the public will that is needed to make necessary change? Participants in this workshop will receive a complimentary copy of the film to take back to their communities to lead conversations and create change.

    This is a half-day workshop on Friday, October 27th from 9:00a-12:00p in Casey Commons, also at Seattle University.

    The workshop fee is $100 minimum (pay more if you can to support access to this event) and includes admission to the film on Thursday, October 26th. Inquire about partial scholarships.
