The film “Healing Justice,” which explores the consequences of the justice system and its effect on marginalized communities, will be shown Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Santos Manuel Student Union Theater at Cal State San Bernardino. The film will be shown at noon, and is presented by Project Rebound, which assists formerly incarcerated individuals to enroll and succeed at CSUSB, and at the Osher Adult Re-entry Student Success Center. The event is free. Following the film, from 4-6:30 p.m., Project Rebound will host an orientation and reception sponsored by the Osher Adult Re-entry Student Success Center in the SMSU Fourplex, rooms SU 217/218. “Healing Justice,” by Shakti Butler, walks back through the history of violence that has led to the current justice system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community and generational level. The documentary addresses the school-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform, and the importance of healing and restorative practices. Project Rebound began at San Francisco State University in 1967, and in 2016, CSUSB faculty members Carolyn Eggleston (education) and Annika Anderson (sociology) established the program here. Project Rebound seeks to admit full-time students to CSUSB who are motivated to succeed in a field of study that leads to an undergraduate and graduate degree. By offering resources and connections with supportive entities, Project Rebound aims to help students with their basic needs so that they can concentrate on gaining expertise in their field of study, and achieve educational and personal empowerment.

The Osher Adult Re-entry Student Success Center at CSUSB offers support for non-traditional students by providing programming that addresses the academic and social needs of mature students. These include referrals and resources on and off campus. Visit the Osher Adult Re-Entry Student Success Center website for more information on its programs.
