Premiering at the 2017 DC Independent Film Festival in February, Free To Ride is the first feature-length documentary to be produced by the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity. The film follows the story of a relentless grassroots coalition from across Dayton, Ohio who overcame a suburban contingent opposed to public transit, and the system of checks and balances that allowed justice and reason to prevail. Amid growing economic inequality, Free To Ride shows that peaceful change is possible and underscores the power of a multi-racial collective to protect the civil rights of all.

A panel discussion and reception will follow  sponsored by PRRAC (Poverty and Race Research Action Council)

The panelists are:

Anita Cozart
Senior Director, PolicyLink

Lessie Henderson
Co-Chair, Prince Georges Advocates for Community Based Transit

Radhika Singh Miller
Director, Civil Legal Aid Initiative, National Legal Aid and Defenders Association

Mark Donaghy
