"Cracking the Codes: Systems of Racial Inequity" premiere film screening and community conversation

The Center for the Study of Justice in Society invites you to a film screening and conversation that is part of a multi-city tour of a new documentary film. "Cracking the Codes" asks America to talk about the causes and consequences of systemic inequity.

The film includes moving personal accounts that illuminate the systems that perpetuate structural inequity and features leaders in the equity movement including many from the Pacific Northwest. Also included in the film are the wisdom of Peggy McIntosh and Tim Wise.

"'Cracking the Codes' is designed to deepen and shift the framing of racial disparities in this country," says Shakti Butler, PhD, director of the film and founder of World Trust Educational Services. CTC is Butler's fourth film with cinematography by her husband, Emmy award-winner Rick Butler. At the event, film clips will be braided with dialogue facilitated by Butler, an opportunity ideal for anyone yearning for change yet wary of conversations about race.
