Join Boston Cares as we debate why children of prisoners are five times more likely than the average child to end up in prison at some point in their lives during our December Social Cinema screening featuring the documentary Troop 1500.

At Hilltop Prison in Gatesville, Texas, a unique Girl Scout troop, Troop 1500, unites daughters with mothers who are serving time for serious crimes, giving them a chance to rebuild their broken bonds. Facing long sentences from the courts, the mothers struggle to mend their fractured relationships with their daughters. Though the girls longingly await the day when their moms are free, their problems do not always end upon their mothers release. The result is a sobering but hopeful look at the struggles faced by the more than 1.5 million American children who have a parent behind bars.

After the screening, participants will have an opportunity to engage in a round-table discussion facilitated by guest speakers.

This event is part of PBS’ Emmy winning series Independent Lens, a free monthly film series hosted in partnership with Boston Cares, ITVS Community Cinema, and City Year.

Boston Cares organizes and leads team-oriented volunteer opportunities and services that have a positive impact on individuals and communities. Boston Cares is currently the largest volunteer center in New England and is a founding member of the Hands On Network, with affiliates in 250 US and international locations.
