The Penalty Goes on Tour of California

We are excited to announce the California Premier Tour of The Penalty from September 17-21!

The Penalty will tour California, from the Bay Area down to Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, with six screenings in five days. At each stop, co-director Will Francome and producer Laura Shacham will join local criminal justice reform advocates to discuss the ways in which the death penalty system brutalizes everyone it touches.

Details and ticket links for all of the screenings are below and you can view more info at and

Don't forget to RSVP on Facebook for additional details and special guest announcements. Once you do, please help us by sharing the events far and wide. And please forward this email to anyone who may be interested!
