Nancy Nordyke Shelley, Coordinator for Justice For All, an Affiliate of the STOP Mass Incarceration Network, joins Solitary Nation for this powerful second episode.

Nancy talks about her son’s experience with the criminal justice system (he was arrested, incarcerated but NEVER convicted) and the effects of mass incarceration in America.

Host, Matt Duhamel asks the tough questions about what needs to be done to fix the broken system.

JustLeadershipUSA (JLUSA) is dedicated to cutting the US correctional population in half by 2030, while reducing crime. One way they are succeeding is by investing in successful formerly incarcerated leaders from across the United States.

Host, Matt Duhamel speaks with Khalil A. Cumberbatch from JLUSA about how ex-offenders can be leaders in the community while working for criminal justice reform. The discussion also touches on how Mr. Cumberbatch, JLUSA founder, Glenn E. Martin and the additional team members are advocating for the permanent closure of Rikers Island Jail in New York. The video podcast includes Rikers Jail news footage, stills and infographics.
