This episode finds us in conversation with our friends at Longmont Community Justice Partnership, talking about their documentary "How to love your enemy", We are joined by Kathleen McGoey, Dan Sidders and Matt Battalgia talking about the reason behind the documentary and the success RJ has been in their community and specifically the relationship LCJP has with local police. The documentary can be found here: https://freethepeople.org/how-to-love-your-enemy-a-restorative-justice-story/ Here is what Free the People say about it on their website: Longmont is a city in Colorado that tries a different kind of justice system, powerful enough to transform a broken system of mass incarceration in the United States. Instead of locking up non-violent offenders, these advocates focus on the challenging but rewarding process of individual responsibility, forgiveness, and redemption that radically shifts our idea of justice and our part in it. Free the People created this original documentary film and it was the winner of Best Feature and Best Director at Front Range Film Festival and was selected at numerous other film festivals across the country, then postponed due to COVID-19. Free the People is releasing the full film ahead of schedule to join the conversation happening about police violence and racial disparities in our justice system in the United States. “How To Love Your Enemy” is an emotionally compelling story about real people working to make things right, and a tutorial for other communities looking to restore faith in their justice systems and law enforcement. Co-directed by Sam Martin and Matt Battaglia.
