Audio Interference 54: Just Leadership USA

"There's only a certain amount of time that a person can languish in prison while they prepare for a trial."

To kick off our fall season of Audio Interference, we're speaking with folks from the criminal justice reform organization Just Leadership USA about their work to cut the US correctional population in half by 2030. Just Leadership USA empowers people most affected by incarceration to drive policy reform. In this first episode, we interview Marvin Mayfield, Nishan “Prince” Jackson, and Shanequa Charles, three of the folks who are spearheading a city and state wide campaign to end mass incarceration in New York.

The bills that Shanequa, Prince, and Marvin worked for and lobbied on behalf of during the 2018 legislative session did not pass. The following is a statement from Just Leadership USA aboutthe state of the bills: https://www.justleadershipusa.org/freenewyork-campaign-responds-to-new-york-states-failure-to-overhaul-bail-discovery-speedy-trial-law-in-2018-legislative-session-statement-from-erin-l-george-new-york-state-campaign-coo/
