“Two Trentons: An American City Speaks” portrays the social and economic influences that have driven this historic city’s decline and those that are shaping its future. It includes the insights of activists, business people, artists, musicians, planners and politicians dedicated to improving their community and shows the challenges and setbacks they are facing along the way. During the filming, a violent episode put into stark relief the tension between the forces pulling Trenton up and those dragging it down.

The film includes footage highlighting the work of The Campaign to End the New Jim Crow (CENJC) and other area nonprofits and advocacy organizations, and discusses mass incarceration and reentry from the perspective of the Trenton community. The film was produced by CENJC member, Joe Hulihan, and directed by Brad Mays, an accomplished documentary filmmaker who lives and works in central NJ. There will be a Q&A following the screening.
