Douglas Democrats will host Nnedi Stephens, President of Washoe County Black Democratic Caucus, who will join us for this important discussion.
Douglas Democrats will be streaming the renown documentary 13th from director of Selma, Ava Duvernay. This documentary recounts the struggle for emancipation while clearly demonstrating the link between slavery and mass incarceration.
Through its deliberate explanation of systematic racism, 13th shows how our government, through several administrations, has preserved and transformed the institution of slavery into our current mass incarceration crisis. This screening is for educational purposes, per Netflix’s specified Terms of Usage.
