Picking Cotton hits the Big Screen

February 4, 2019

We are excited to announce that Picking Cotton is being made into a movie! Picking Cotton was co-authored by Healing Justice Founder Jennifer Thompson and Ronald Cotton who, together, suffered and survived a terrible criminal justice failure and went on to become pioneers of restorative justice in cases involving exonerations. This critical project will help to increase awareness about the many concentric circles of harm caused by wrongful convictions. The film will be financed and produced by Sidney Kimmel Entertainment and directed by Jessica Sanders.
