Conviction

Kamloops & District Elizabeth Fry Society

Friday, October 11 @ 6:30pm

Alarmed By the Rising Numbers of Women in Prison; Kamloops & District Elizabeth Fry Society Presents National Film Board documentary “Conviction”.

Over the past decade there has been a 30% increase in the number of federally sentenced women and a 60% increase in the number of Indigenous female inmates. The greatest increase came from BC where in 2016-17, 47% of women admitted to federal custody were Indigenous – nearly double the percentage 10 years ago. To call attention to this issue, on October 11, 2019, at 6:30 pm Kamloops & District Elizabeth Fry Society in partnership with Addiction Matters Kamloops will be presenting a screening of a Photo Voice Video and the National Film Board documentary, Conviction, at the KFS Paramount Theatre. A panel discussion will follow and will include, a criminal defense lawyer, an addictions specialist, an RCMP officer, a TRU professor, an Indigenous woman and a woman with lived experience.

Please come out and join us for this exciting event. The Screening of Conviction, Photo Voice Video and Panel Discussion are free to attend. A suggested donation of $10 is welcome to support the work of the Elizabeth Fry Society. All funds raised will support the creation of a Women’s Recovery House program.
