ACLU film screening

Monday, October 26, 7:00 PM, Charleston: Terrace Theater

You are invited to a free screening of

AMERICAN VIOLET

Based on a True Story

An innocent woman is arrested, charged, and imprisoned for drug trafficking in this film based on the life of Regina Kelly, a 24-year-old mother of four in a small town in Texas. Ms. Kelly refuses to plead guilty or plea bargain and, with the help of the ACLU and others in her community, she challenges the local criminal justice system.

The film explores the issues of racial profiling and inequities in the “war on drugs,” and it dramatizes the importance of standing up for our civil liberties.
