Sundance ‘n CLE

The Salt Lake County Bar Association & the Utah Minority Bar Association Present

Sundance ‘n’ CLE @ Brewvies: “3 ½ Minutes, 10 Bullets”

3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets is a prize-winning Sundance film that documents the shooting of Jordan Davis, a black 17-year old, and the ensuing trial of his white shooter, Michael Dunn. The documentary highlights the real world, and often deadly consequences of racial bias, specifically with regard to black men and boys, and recounts one community’s search for justice within the judicial system.

After the screening, we will be joined for a panel discussion with Professor Erika George, Dr. Bryan Hotchkins and ACLU Legal Director John Mejia.

Silent Auction

This year’s silent auction benefit partner for the Spring Dinner/Dance is the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center at the YWCA Utah.

The Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center at the YWCA serves victims of domestic violence by providing access to many different critical resources under a single roof to provide better coordinated, seamless services for male and female victims and survivors. The Center brings together specialized services in one location where victims can report domestic violence related crimes to the police, obtain assistance with protective orders, speak to a victim advocate, contact a prosecuting attorney to learn about the criminal process or discuss a pending criminal case, find shelter, housing and support groups, and obtain employment and job training.

Services are available to victims and their families on a walk-in basis, regardless of the need for shelter. Each person receives personalized advocacy including bilingual and translation services.

Please help us keep this life-saving service possible by participating in the silent auction! Here are some of the items that will be up for bid:
