Decarcerate PA puts the prison system on trial! Check out these great interviews conducted by Thomas Ford from Exit-Us Reentry and filmed by Alicia Dorsey from PhillyCAM. Appearing in the video are Jerry Jordan, head of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, Dana Lomax-Williams from the Human Rights Coallition, Romeeka Williams from the Youth Art and Self Empowerment Project, and Malissa Gamble from the Returning Citizens Voters Movement. Big thanks to all the organizations and individuals who participated in the tribunal. Together we can decarcerate PA!
