A strong theme in this film is community empowerment.   The vision expressed by Janet – of circles regularly held in the community so that all voices are heard and all needs are met – is a vision of community empowerment.  CIRCLE UP promotes prevention through community engagement and offers a model for bringing the circle into community to prevent violence and cultivate good relationships.
