TJP Fundraiser: “Southwest of Salem” screening + speakers

Nov 15th, 2019 | Category: Uncategorized

Southwest of Salem posterSouthwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four explores the nightmarish persecution of Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez — four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of sexually assaulting two little girls in San Antonio, Texas. They were 19 and 20 years at the time of the allegations. The film begins during their time in prison and unfolds dramatically as attorneys and advocates fight to free them.

Join us for a private screening on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at Utopia Theater, at the UT Steve Hicks School of Social Work,  1925 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78712. We’ll have a talk from Emmy nominated, Peabody award-winning director Deborah Esquenazi. Also speaking is Keith Hampton, the well-known Austin lawyer who worked on the case and is in the film; he will also describe his ongoing collaboration with Texas Jail Project in supporting vulnerable populations in county jails.

Tickets are $20 and benefit Texas Jail Project. Super Supporters can buy two tickets and the extra one will provide a free ticket to a low-income attendee.  If you cannot attend, please consider a donation to help us continue our essential advocacy.
