Let’s Talk: Philly D.A. | Life without Parole
Mon, June 13, 2022 6:00 P.M.
Join your neighbors to watch and discuss with experts and community leaders the crucial fifth episode of the award winning Philly D.A. docu-series.
Do life sentences keep our city safe? What is the cost of a life-sentence to a person, their family, their community, and especially when that person is a juvenile? We will use episode 5 as a jumping off point to discuss and learn about community youth resources with neighborhood advocates.
Episode 5 synopsis (watch clip) : Krasner reviews the case of Joseph Chamberlain, who was sentenced to life without parole as a juvenile for murdering another teenager in 1992. He struggles to persuade the public and the media of systemic solutions to public safety during a spike in the homicide rate.
Other episodes of the series, also paired with community conversations, will screen throughout our library system:
