3rd Thursday Film and Discussion
Thursday, August 16th at 7PM

Special Teach-In this month
Children in the Adult Criminal Justice System
with Special Guest Bridget Cervelli of Human Rights Watch

Please join us for our monthly Third Thursday Teach-In series, where we watch a documentary or short film and then discuss how we can act locally around the issues shown in the film.

This month the topic of the film and discussion will be children caught in the criminal justice system.  Since 1995, California law has allowed children ages 14 and up accused of certain serious crimes to be charged as adults (rather than charged in the juvenile justice system.)  But since then, research has shown that children are more likely to be rehabilitated in the juvenile system than in the adult criminal justice system.

For the film and discussion, we will have a special guest, Bridget Cervelli from Human Rights Watch, who will talk with us about state bill SB-1391 which would end the authority to charge 14 and 15 year-olds as adults.

The bill SB-1391 may come for a vote before the movie screening, with a hearing scheduled in the California Assembly Appropriations Committee on August 8. You can read the bill's analysis at
Here is an excerpt from the bill's proponents' statement: "this practice [of charging some children as adults] has disproportionately affected Black and Latino youth. Just over the past 10 years, 50 percent of Latino youth and 60 percent of Black youth were sent to adult court after a transfer hearing, compared to only 10 percent of White youth for similar crimes. Some youth sentenced to adult prison may have committed very serious crimes, but they are not the majority. In 2015, about 72 percent of youth under age 16 were sent to adult court for crimes such as burglary, robbery and assault."

Whittier's Assemblymember, Ian Calderon, is on the Appropriations Committee that will vote on this bill. If you want to call him to tell him your opinion on the bill, his phone number is (916) 319-2057 (Sacramento office) or (562) 692-5858 (City of Industry office).

We hope you will join us every 3rd Thursday of the Month.

WAPJC Mission Statement

The Whittier Area Peace and Justice Coalition is a broadly based group of local community members whose purpose is to share a vision for peace, justice and environmental well-being.  This vision is grounded in the beliefs that all life is sacred; that differences between people and nations can be resolved in non-violent ways; and that peace is more than the absence of war or the denial of conflict.

  "Peace hath higher tests of manhood  
than battle ever knew."

~ John Greenleaf Whittier

  "I criticize America because I love her and because
I want to see her to stand as the moral example of the world.
War anywhere intensifies the possibility of war everywhere.
When major world powers flaunt the authority of the United Nations
and embark on unilateral courses of action they open the door
to similar actions on the part of other nations."

~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

  "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
~ Theodore Roosevelt

  "We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty, we must remember always that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law.  We will not walk in fear—one, of another.  We will not be driven by fear into an age of un-reason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men; Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were—for the moment—unpopular."
~ Edward R. Murrow

  "A little patience, and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles.  It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt… If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake."
~ Thomas Jefferson
commenting on the Alien and Sedition acts in 1798

Pity the Nation  ~  Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Pity the nation whose people are sheep,
and whose shepherds mislead them.
Pity the nation whose leaders are liars,
whose sages are silenced,
and whose bigots haunt the airwaves.
Pity the nation that raises not its voice,
except to praise conquerors and acclaim the bully as hero
and aims to rule the world with force and by torture.
Pity the nation that knows no other language but its own
and no other culture but its own.
Pity the nation whose breath is money
and sleeps the sleep of the too well fed.
Pity the nation —
oh, pity the people who allow their rights to erode
and their freedoms to be washed away.
My country, tears of thee, sweet land of liberty.

FDR quote
The Nightmare by Mark Bryan
