“Resolve to Stop the Violence Project”

April 28th@7:30pm

The last event in the Social Justice Committee’s Open Minds Speaker Series will be held on Friday, April 28 at 7:30pm. This time we will focus on an innovative program that helps violent offenders change their behavior: RSVP (Resolve to Stop the Violence Program). RSVP has been shown to reduce recidivism for violent offenses by 83% and to virtually eliminate in-prison violence. Charlotte Simpson, a local activist who is working to convince legislators to fund a pilot program in a Massachusetts prison will join us. The event will include a showing of the Emmy nominated film,
Fatal Peril, which

documents the experiences of a group of inmates at the San Francisco Jail who participated in RSVP. The film, which aired on PBS and is sometimes difficult to watch, provides an enlightening and moving view into the world of men working to overcome their violent impulses. Charlotte will describe the program and take questions after the film.

The event is free and open to the public.
