Summary of No Visible Trauma:

In the midst of a global uprising against police violence and systemic racism, No Visible Trauma is a searing investigation of the deeply troubled Calgary Police Service, which shot and killed more people than the New York or Chicago police departments in 2018. From the kidnapping and beating of a young African immigrant, to the fatal shooting of an unarmed man during a “wellness check”, the film exposes police brutality and a justice system that refuses to hold officers accountable.

This documentary was filmed in Calgary, but the problems exposed by the film are present across Canada.

The Social Justice Team strives to find tangible ways to have an impact in our community. We are grateful to the filmmakers and Story Money Impact for giving us the opportunity to offer free viewing of  this film and for sponsorship of the panelists. We hope that watching this film will inspire you to become involved in looking for solutions. There are several organizations in Vancouver that are actively working on police accountability issues and others working on new approaches for mental health emergencies.
