Violence Interrupters: Film Screening and Panel Discussion
Meet Everyday Heroes that Protect Albany Streets!
Saturday October 22 at
Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary
College of Saint Rose
959 Madison Ave, Albany
The Interrupters documentary presents unforgettable profiles in courage, as three former street criminals in Chicago place themselves in the line of fire to protect their communities. The two-hour film follows the lives of these “Violence Interrupters,” who include the charismatic daughter of one of the city’s most notorious former gang leaders, the son of a murdered father, and a man haunted by a killing he committed as a teenager. As they intervene in disputes to prevent violence, they reveal their own inspired journeys of struggle and redemption. This work is the inspiration for our local Cure Violence chapter (formerly SNUG) funded through Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region.
After the documentary, we will have a panel discussion featuring real life Cure Violence Interrupters who work heroically to reduce violence in Albany.

Kasir Rasul, Cure Violence Director
