Special Screening: The Blood is at the Doorstep

The Blood is at the Doorstep FlyerTo help the Anti-Oppression Series get a strong start, we will also be offering special screenings of 'The Blood is at the Doorstep' in Framingham (May  23rd  at  Advocates  in  Framingham), and the Pioneer Valley (May  24th,  location  TBD).

On April 30, 2014, in the broad daylight of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, an officer responding to a complaint from a Starbucks employee approached Dontre Hamilton, an unarmed black man with a psychiatric diagnosis who was resting in a nearby park. Minutes later, the officer shot Dontre 14 times.

Filmed over the course of three years, 'The Blood Is at the Doorstep' follows Dontre’s family and surrounding community through their struggle to find answers and challenge a criminal justice system full of bias, abuses of power, racism, and psychiatric oppression.

We will be joined by Dontre's mother (Maria Hamilton) 
and brothers (Dameion and Nate) for both screenings.
