Library to Screen “The House I Live In”

Tompkins County Public Library, in partnership with the Multicultural Resource Center’s New Jim Crow Community Read, will host a free screening of “The House I Live In,” Thursday, January 26 at 6 p.m. in the BorgWarner Community Room.

Winner of the Sundance Film Festival’s top documentary honor, “The House I Live In” explores the financial and societal costs of the government’s war on drugs, while making a case for drug use as a public health crisis not a criminal justice pandemic.

This film is intended for an adult audience.

Since March 2016, the Multicultural Resource Center’s Community Read has galvanized more than 30 community organizations in the development of a plan to study and ultimately take action to locally confront mass incarceration.
