Documentary Screening: Circle Up!

The Dane County Timebank is presenting Julie Mallozzi’s Circle Up, an award-winning documentary on justice, forgiveness and the cycle of violence. It will be showing at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery on March 10th at 2pm.

“After the brutal slaying of her teenage son, Janet Connors reaches out to her son’s killer to offer a chance for forgiveness. They team up with a group of mothers of murdered children to help young people in their community break the chain of violence and revenge. Circle Up is a call to action for reframing approaches to crime and punishment through the lens of restorative justice, forgiveness, and accountability.”

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director. Learn more on the Facebook event page and watch the trailer here
