As part of a nationwide tour, #cut50 National Organizer Louis L. Reed will be visiting Albuquerque on November 12, 2019 to learn about the urgent needs of those impacted by mass incarceration.
This is all part of the year long #EmpathyTour. Albuquerque will be the twelfth stop of the tour and the ACLU of New Mexico Smart Justice program will be joining Louis to co-host a screening of Van Jones' "Redemption Project" along with a panel discussion on mass incarceration in New Mexico.
We'll start the evening off with an exclusive screening of an episode from The Redemption Project, the intense new CNN original series hosted by Van Jones. A discussion on redemption and all the forms it can take – in advocacy, in policy change, or simply in a conversation between two people – will follow, with ample time for Q&A.
