As a class assignment, have your students write to Patricia via the information below. Have them share their thoughts on the film and what it meant to them to hear her story. Have them share their thoughts on the criminal justice system, her incarceration, choices, and hope for the future.

* Please keep in mind to be respectful of Patricia. She has been incarcerated for 45 years, and this is the first time she has opened up about the intimate details of her story. Please do not use this activity as an avenue of continued hatred, but an opportunity for openness.
