"Disrupting A Vicious Cycle: Ending Police Violence!" Sign up for the next PSEG True Diversity Film Series



Free on Zoom
Monday, February 27 @ 7PM

With each new devastating act of police violence, questions echo through our homes and communities. How do we stop the murder of Black people at the hands of law enforcement? How do we prevent Black people from being arrested, imprisoned and killed for crimes they didn’t commit? What is being done? And how much longer will it take?

For our next PSEG True Diversity Film Series event, we invite you to watch Just Mercy and join us for a panel conversation. A powerful and thought-provoking true story, this film follows a young lawyer (Michael B. Jordan) and his history-making battle to exonerate a man who has been wrongfully sentenced to death (Jamie Foxx). Our panelists will discuss the issues raised by the film and provide insight into the work happening right now to transform our unjust legal system.​​​

How to participate:

  1. Register here.
  2. You’ll receive a link to watch Just Mercy for free at home on your own schedule.
  3. Join us for a virtual panel discussion at 7PM on February 27.

Our panel will be moderated by Amol Sinha, Executive Director of the ACLU of New Jersey (ACLU-NJ).

Our panelists include:

Rev. Dr. Charles Boyer, Founder of Salvation and Social Justice

Nafeesah Goldsmith, COO of Youth Function Over Form and a longtime criminal legal reformer

Josh Moskovitz, Civil Rights Litigator and Partner with law firm Hamilton Clarke

Jim Sullivan, Deputy Policy Director of the ACLU-NJ
