Spokane Hosts Beyond the Wall Documentary

You are here

Spokane Public Library and Pioneer Human Services are hosting a FREE screening and panel discussion of Beyond the Wall, a documentary that follows individuals after their release from prison. All Pioneer Spokane employees are invited to attend the screening and participate in the panel discussion.

The U.S. incarcerates Americans at globally unprecedented rates. What’s more, within three years of release approximately two-thirds of the formerly incarcerated are rearrested and sent back to prison. The documentary, Beyond the Wall, takes a close look at the journey from incarceration to community, from behind the wall to beyond the wall. The journey is often riddled with barriers and uncertainty.
