Film: The House I Live In at SJPJC

This ties in with our study of the book "The New Jim Crow"

Movie: "The House I Live In"

Friday, July[masked] @ 7:00 PM
San Jose Peace and Justice Center

48 S. 7th St.

As America remains embroiled in conflict overseas, a less visible war is taking place at home, costing countless lives, destroying families, and inflicting untold damage upon future generations of Americans. In forty years, the War on Drugs has accounted for more than 45 million arrests, made America the world's largest jailer, and damaged poor communities at home and abroad. Yet for all that, drugs are cheaper, purer, and more available today than ever before.

Filmed in more than twenty states, THE HOUSE I LIVE IN captures heart-wrenching stories from individuals at all levels of America's War on Drugs.

From the dealer to the grieving mother, the narcotics officer to the senator, the inmate to the federal judge, the film offers a penetrating look inside America's longest war-a definitive portrait
revealing its profound human rights implications.
