The First Step Act documentary viewing in Omaha, Nebraska presented by RISE

Senator John McCollister
Henry Cordes - OWH Journalist

About "The First Step":
In a divided America, progressive activist and political commentator Van Jones controversially works across party lines on landmark criminal justice reform and a more humane response to the addiction crisis. Attempting to be a bridge builder in a time of extreme polarization takes Van and a coalition of unlikely allies deep into the inner workings of a divisive administration, internal debates within both parties, and the lives of frontline activists fighting for their communities.

*Ticket information coming soon!*
