Prison-Reform Movie to Screen
The film “It’s More Expensive to do Nothing” will be screened for free at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, 429 Cypress Ave., on March 15 at 10:30 a.m., noon and 1:30 p.m.
“Our goal is to share accurate information about the conditions in our criminal justice system to the public. After looking at alternative approaches to our justice system, it is time to make our voices heard,” says a statement from Advocates for Cost- Effective Justice in OC, which includes Laguna Beach’s AAUW chapter, some churches, the League of Women Voters, and the Woman’s Club.
Orange County Sheriffs Sandra Hutchins and John Kea will speak March 29 at the group’s first town hall meeting, which will concentrate on local prison conditions.
It will also be held at the UUFLB Fellowship.
