Join us for a screening of the award-winning 2013 documentary, Gideon's Army, directed by Dawn Porter.   The documentary follows three young public defenders in the South, where sentencing is exceptionally steep and the prison population swollen. The film takes its name from Gideon v. Wainwright, the landmark 1963 Supreme Court decision that guarantees the right of legal representation to all criminal defendants.
