The short film Rikers: Innocence Lost, will be paired three amazing panels:

- The filmmaker and project leaders

- Those interviewed in the film with lived experience on Rikers Island

- Leaders from grassroots organizations working on the Close Rikers campaign as well as from city government

Towards the end there will be an opportunity to network with organizations represented and find ways to get plugged into the work.
