Gideon’s Army

Everyone deserves the best defense. They fight for it.

Three young, idealistic public defenders in the Deep South struggle against long hours, low pay and staggering caseloads to ensure justice is served for the people society would rather forget. 

ACLU of Idaho hosted a series of in events in Boise that included Gideon's Army Director Dawn Porter. The events commemorated the 50th anniversary of Gideon v. Wainwright.

We offer several great ways you can connect your community to our film and the important issues it presents:

    • If you're interested in screening Gideon’s Army at a local theatrical venue (with the possibility of partnering with other local organizations), click here. You can host an event at NO cost if you help pre-sell a required number of tickets. This option also allows your organization to keep a portion of total ticket revenues.
