Special Screening: Blood is at the Doorstep

Dontre’s mother (Maria Hamilton) and two brothers (Dameion and Nate) will join us

May 23, 6pm to 8:30pm
Advocates, 1881 Worcester Rd., Framingham, MA

On April 30, 2014, in the broad daylight of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, an officer responding to a complaint from a Starbucks employee approached Dontre Hamilton, an unarmed black man with a psychiatric diagnosis who was resting in a nearby park. Minutes later, the officer shot Dontre 14 times.

Filmed over the course of three years, The Blood Is at the Doorstep follows Dontre’s family (including his mother, Maria, and brothers, Dameion and Nate) and surrounding community through their struggle to find answers and challenge a criminal justice system full of bias, abuses of power, racism, and psychiatric oppression.
