Full Circle 2-9-18: UnCommon Law

Tonight, we discuss incarceration.

From Angela Davis’ “Are Prisons Obsolete?” to Michelle Alexander’s “The New Jim Crow,” the surge of freedom fighters challenging our mass incarceration system is ever-increasing, particularly in light of growing ICE raids and the reign of violence targeting black and brown communities.

On tonight’s show:

  • I am honored to be joined by Keith Wattley, founder and executive director of UnCommon Law, for the entire hour.
  • We will listen to voices from UnCommon Law’s event, “UnCommon Heroes.”
  • We will discuss recent criminal justice reform efforts …
  • And … the changes Keith continues to envision in the fight for justice.

All that tonight on Full Circle.
