This documentary focuses on criminal justice reform in NYC from 2014 through 2018 and follows the stories of the NYPD 12, a group of NYC police officers that sued the NYPD for its arrest and summons quota system being illegally implemented in NYC communities of color. UMMS will host a panel discussion following the screening featuring UMMS faculty/staff and Y.O.U., Inc. staff to discuss criminal justice, healthcare, and research practice reform. Refreshments from Crust and North Main Provisions will be provided.

Ticket and beer+wine sales from Greater Good will go toward Y.O.U., Inc. fundraising. This event also features a silent auction with items donated from Central Massachusetts and Worcester businesses to highlight businesses in our community. Check out the silent auction to bid on items like month passes to Central Rock Gym, a gift basket from Armeno Coffee Roasters, or gift cards to Pho Sure!
