From Ashes to Beauty: Stories After Incarceration, a 30-minute documentary film, highlights four success stories after incarceration. A 45-minute panel discussion with the film subjects and creators will follow the screening.
The film features individuals from across Wisconsin–Eugene Crisler’El and Anthony Cooper from Madison, Antonia Drew Norton from Milwaukee, and Vicky Harrison from the Menominee Reservation. Each person has a uniquely powerful story. Their experiences before and during incarceration inform the impactful work each are doing in their communities now.
Personal care items (shampoo, conditioner, soap, toilet tissue, puffs, or deodorant, etc.) will be collected. Donated items will be distributed to The ASHA Project, Ex-incarcerated People Organizing (EXPO), and the food pantry on the Menominee Reservation.
