MCPS to Host Private Screening of the Film, Circles
Staff are invited to attend a free, private screening of the film Circles at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28, at AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring.
Circles focuses on the life of Eric Butler, a Hurricane Katrina survivor and pioneer of the restorative justice movement. Filmed over two years, the movie follows Butler’s impassioned efforts to nurture underserved youth, keep them in school and fight racial discrimination by replacing suspensions and expulsions with mentoring. During the event, guests will have the chance to hear from Butler about his implementation of restorative circles professionally and personally.
Admission is free, but tickets must be reserved online.
