Beyond the Wall San Diego Film Premiere

TSDF invited donors and partners only.
Tuesday, February 20

Recidivism doesn’t impact ex-offenders alone. High reincarceration rates take a significant toll on the regional economy, children and families, and the overall safety and quality of life in our communities.

The Malin Burnham Center for Civic Engagement is presenting the San Diego premiere of the documentary Beyond the Wall. Following the film screening, local leaders, experts and attendees will engage in a conversation about how San Diego agencies and organizations are working together to reduce recidivism and create opportunities to improve the criminal justice system and our community.
