MIT Urban Film Series: Right to Fail

Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Virtual Event

Please join us for this film screening and discussion as part of the ongoing MIT Urban Planning Film Series.

Thousands of New Yorkers with severe mental illnesses won the chance to live independently in supported housing, following a 2014 federal court order. In "Right to Fail," FRONTLINE and ProPublica investigate what’s happened to people moved from adult homes into apartments and find more than two dozen cases in which the system failed, sometimes with deadly consequences.  

The screening will be followed by a special Q&A audience discussion with ProPublica reporter Joaquin Sapien.

Registration required: (after registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting).
