Dear Educator,

In order to facilitate dialogue around the current crisis in policing, we
are offering our documentary EVERY MOTHER'S SON
<http://t.ymlp291.net/myyaiauqybyarauhyaiammesq/click.php> as a free stream
on the PBS series POV's site until May 2015. You can access the stream free
of charge here <http://t.ymlp291.net/jssakauqybyanauhyacammesq/click.php>.
Please help us spread the word among the educators and student
organizations in your institution.

<http://t.ymlp291.net/myyaiauqybyarauhyaiammesq/click.php> provides
history, context and analysis of the events unfolding today. Twenty years
ago, Anthony Baez was killed by an illegal police chokehold in New York
City. Today, the overuse of force by police officers continues to tear
apart families and communities from New York to St. Louis and beyond. EVERY
MOTHER’S SON <http://t.ymlp291.net/myyaiauqybyarauhyaiammesq/click.php>,
our Emmy-nominated documentary, explores policing policy and practice
through the deeply personal stories of three innocent young men killed by
police: Anthony Baez, Amadou Diallo and Gideon Busch Boskey.

<http://t.ymlp291.net/myyaiauqybyarauhyaiammesq/click.php> has provoked
engaged discussion and critical thinking among students in hundreds of
classrooms, around issues such as:

*   "quality of life" policing and the "broken windows" theory
 *   racial profiling
*   excessive use of force
*   the "blue wall of silence"
*   the "rotten apple" theory
 *   effectiveness of the courts in cases in cases where police officers
are charged with misconduct
*   community organizing for greater police accountability

<http://t.ymlp291.net/myyaiauqybyarauhyaiammesq/click.php> was on the
national PBS series POV, won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film
Festival and was nominated for a national Emmy award.

<http://t.ymlp291.net/myyaiauqybyarauhyaiammesq/click.php> a valuable
educational or organizing tool, please consider purchasing a copy at the
educational rate. To purchase a DVD, or download a copy of our free 23-page
