MILWAUKEE 53206 chronicles the lives of those living in the ZIP code that incarcerates the highest percentage of black men in America, up to 62%. Through the intimate stories of three 53206 residents, we witness the high toll that excessive jail sentencing takes on individuals and families that make up the community. The film examines Milwaukee’s ZIP code 53206 to illuminate the story of people from across the United States who live with the daily effects of unjust and long jail sentence.
The sponsors for this event are the Justice Collaboratory at Yale Law School, the Liman Center For Public Interest Law, the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration and a generous contribution from the MacArthur Foundation.
