Bryan Stevenson: Ending Mass Incarceration By 2024

In a new episode of The Laura Flanders Show, Bryan Stevenson discusses the Equal Justice Initiative and their plans to end mass incarceration in the next 6-8 years. There’s also a great short film on the history of slavery and the prison system by Molly Crabapple.

Here’s Laura’s description of the show:

Mercy — more and more people are talking about it in the context of the masses of Americans incarcerated. But is mercy enough? Bryan Stevenson of the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama, has done a lot to push this debate to the front.

And we look deeper at the Equal Justice Initiative’s work to address the history of slavery and lynchings with a short film by artist Molly Crabapple.

All this, and Laura discusses how to end isolation, both in prisons and outside.

We’re all fans of Crabapple’s work here at Shadowproof, so this edition was both thought-provoking and a visual treat.
