The United States has the most prisoners of any nation in the world both in raw numbers and by percentage of the population. These numbers are further compounded within Milwaukee’s mostly African-American 53206 ZIP code, where 62% of adult men have spent time in prison, making MILWAUKEE 53206 the most incarcerated ZIP code in the nation.
MILWAUKEE 53206 chronicles
the lives of those affected by incarceration in America’s most
incarcerated ZIP code. Through the intimate stories of three 53206
residents, we witness the high toll mass incarceration takes on
individuals and families that make up the community. The film not only
examines Milwaukee’s ZIP code 53206, but also illuminates the story of
people from across the United States who live with the daily affects of
mass incarceration. To learn more visit https://www.milwaukee53206.com/about/.
