River Phoenix Center for Peacebuilding presents: "Unlikely Friends"

Tuesday, Feb 18 7:00p
Civic Media Center Gainesville, FL

The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world with one out of 32 Americans under criminal justice supervision. The rest of the world is intrigued by the paradox that the leading democracy in the free world imprisons so many of its citizens, 25% of the total prisoners worldwide.

"Unlikely Friends" documents victims of brutal crimes who, through forgiveness, unexpectedly become friends with their perpetrators.

Q & A will follow as we discuss using Restorative Justice.
