Race in Colorado: Justice "A Sentenced Life"

Posted by Alexa Corcoran on

Blacks and Latinos are overrepresented in the criminal justice system nationally and in Colorado. From arrests, through incarceration and release, the system has a strong undertow of people of color: it’s easy to get caught up and difficult to escape.

This documentary follows Coloradans through their experiences with four major stages of the system: arrest, detention, release and re-integration. The film seeks to understand how these individuals got to where they are, how they can overcome their past and how the state can chart a positive course forward to increase equity and safety for every Coloradan.
