Rod Library and Student Disability Services will host the second in a series of films and discussions surrounding disability as a social justice issue. Steven Onken, social work, will facilitate an audience discussion with panelists from local mental health and criminal justice systems. Panelists include Al Hays, professor emeritus; Thomas Eachus, UnityPoint/Black Hawk-Grundy Mental Health Center; Marvin Spencer, First Judicial District Department of Correctional Services; and Lacey Combs, student intern at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women. Excerpts from “The Released” video will be shown that contain some graphic language and imagery.
