THE FIRST STEP | DOCUMENTARY FEATURE | USA

In a divided America, Van Jones controversially works across party lines on landmark criminal justice reform and a more humane response to the addiction crisis. Attempting to be a bridge builder in a time of extreme polarization takes him deep into the inner workings of a divisive administration, internal debates within both parties, and the lives of frontline activists fighting for their communities.

LIVE FORUM + COCKTAILS TO FOLLOW THE FILM WITH DIRECTOR BRANDON KRAMER AND REFORM ACTIVIST LOUIS REED.
