We are thrilled to announce a premiere event coming up on November 17th at Georgetown University in partnership with Georgetown's Prisons and Justice Initiative and its Film and Media Studies Program.
This will be the Washington, DC premiere of two new TEACHED short films—Think of Calvin and Code Oakland—as well as our first "Changing the Lens" event examining how each and every individual can play a role in transforming society into one that is more just, equitable and fair.
We thank CityBridge Foundation and the Moriah Fund for sponsoring this special event, and Marc Morjé Howard, Director of the Prisons and Justice Initiative, and Bernard Cook, Director of the Film and Media Studies program, for working with us to organize it.
