Justice Reform

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday 8am), I speak with community advocate Sherri Jefferson, founder of the African American Juvenile Justice Project. Amid the pandemic, a judge in Fayette County has sentenced a 76-year-old African American woman to 499 days in jail for a DUI that did not involve any people being harmed.

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take, I spoke with Glenda Gill,  founder of Save a Girl, Save a World about their program to promote intergenerational communication and engagement with African American girls, young adults and women. Glenda Gill shares how she came to found Save A Girl, Save a World (SAGSAW), after hearing a keynote address from Julianne Malveaux. 

This week on The Local Take I welcomed back Pamela Perkins-Carn, a community advocate who is involved with EMI-Georgia Network.  I speak with her about this organization and their work specifically in our state to end the school/birth to prison pipeline. The End Mass Incarceration Georgia Network is an intentional association of faith communities, organizations and individuals formed to effect positive change in the area of juvenile and criminal justice.  

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I spoke with Kisha Bird, director of Youth policy with CLASP - the Center for Law and Social Policy. This is part of our our ongoing conversation about the school to prison pipeline and the struggles for justice and equality for the young people in our community.
