Please join us for a screening of the documentary “Milwaukee 53206,” on Feb. 17th at 3:00pm at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church. Following the screening, we will be having a group discussion on our thoughts, views and what we can now do to support the children, parents and families affected by mass incarceration. Pr. Mark Thompson of Breaking the Chains Church will be helping to lead our discussion.

MILWAUKEE 53206 chronicles the lives of those living in the ZIP code that incarcerates the highest percentage of black men in America, up to 62%. Through the intimate stories of three 53206 residents, we witness the high toll mass incarceration takes on individuals and families that make up the community. The film not only examines Milwaukee’s ZIP code 53206, but also illuminates the story of people from across the United States who live with the daily effects of mass incarceration.

Please email stlukes@slchurch.org your RSVP by February 9th to secure your spot for this important screening event. You can also join the event through our Facebook page @StLukesGreendale. Registration is not required for the event but an RSVP is encouraged.
