According to the New York Film Festival description of the documentary, “Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads ‘Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.’ The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis. A Netflix original documentary.”
What does Enough Is Enough do?
Enough Is Enough supports people who have experienced racial profiling, harassment, and brutality by the Rochester Police Department. We attend court proceedings, provide emotional and tactical support for people who have experienced police violence, work toward systemic change in law enforcement, and develop coalitions to hold the system accountable.
We meet every Tuesday, 7:00PM - 9:00PM at the Flying Squirrel. We are setting our regular meeting aside on November 15 to screen “13TH”.
