Brave New Films has produced the Healing Trauma Series to address an important feeder of the systemic issues which fuel our incarceration crisis: trauma. The films in this series profile two different programs that aim to reduce the recidivism of formerly-incarcerated individuals by providing holistic, trauma-informed approaches that we can apply to our Pasadena community.

ACLU called the Assembly’s 67 to 0 vote yesterday a “breakthrough” on legislation that, if passed out of the Senate and signed, will give California one of the most stringent use of force standards in the country.
According to ACLU, the bill will update California’s outdated use of force standard to require that police officers avoid using deadly force when there are other options. The bill will also help ensure officers are held accountable when they fail to comply with this new standard.
