How To Love Your Enemy: A Restorative Justice Story is an emotionally compelling story about real people working to make things right, and a tutorial for other communities looking to restore faith in their justice systems and law enforcement.

A city in Colorado tries a different kind of justice system, powerful enough to transform a broken system of mass incarceration in the United States. Instead of locking up non-violent offenders, these advocates focus on the challenging but rewarding process of individual responsibility, forgiveness, and redemption that radically shifts our idea of justice and our part in it.

This Free the People original documentary film was the winner of Best Feature and Best Director at Front Range Film Festival and was selected at numerous other film festivals across the country, then postponed due to COVID-19. Free the People is releasing the full film ahead of schedule to join the conversation happening about police violence and racial disparities in our justice system in the United States.

POV | Out in the Night | PBS

Find out more at: www.pbs.org/pov/outinthenight "Out in the Night" is now streaming on POV: www.pbs.org/pov/outinthenight/full.php A documentary film by blair dorosh-walther In 2006, under the neon lights of a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The tabloids quickly dubbed them a gang of "Killer Lesbians" and a "Wolf Pack." Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four — Renata, Patreese, Venice and Terrain — maintained their innocence. The award-winning Out in the Night examines the sensational case and the women's uphill battle, revealing the role that race, gender identity and sexuality play in our criminal justice system. A co-production of ITVS. A co-presentation with the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC).

Trailer | 9to5: The Story of a Movement

When Dolly Parton sang “9 to 5,” she was singing about a real movement that started with a group of secretaries in the early 1970s. Their goals were simple—better pay, more advancement opportunities and an end to sexual harassment—but as seen in 9to5: The Story of a Movement, their fight that inspired a hit would change the American workplace forever.
