Dr. Balmaceda leads discussion on mothers in prison

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Monday March 3, 2014

The Nyack Public Library is sponsoring a special event as part of their celebration of Women's History Month. "Mothers of Bedford" is a moving documentary about five young women at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility and how they attempt to seek restoration in their own lives and try to stay connected with their children despite the bars of the maximum security prison that separate them. 

Dr. Vilma Balmeceda, Director of the Center for Scholarship and Global Engagement & Associate Professor of Political Science, will facilitate a discussion on the film and address the rights of women in prison.

The event is free of charge and will take place at the Nyack Library (59 South Broadway, Nyack) on Thursday, March 13, 7:00pm.
