Notes from Episode 55

I have taken a job as a Policy Analyst at Safe and Just Michigan.

I have written a great deal in a short time about the Bernie Sanders answer during a Town Hall meeting about voting for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people (most recently in our weekly newsletter). I believe Bernie was right (and I don’t always agree with Bernie).

If you want to know more about the Redemption Project, I believe you can stream the first episode on demand now.
