In a virtual event, criminal justice activist and podcast host Jason Flom and exoneree Noura Jackson discuss the need for criminal justice reform—something that has been brought into immediate sharp focus given the current coronavirus healthcare crisis in the nation’s prison system. The Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom podcast features interviews with men and women who have spent years in prison for crimes they did not commit—some of them having even been sentenced to death. Jackson and additional special guests join Flom to unravel their own wrongful convictions and talk about how the spread of COVID-19 in the nation’s prison systems has highlighted the injustices faced by this forgotten population of citizens. Moderated by Emily Bazelon, author of Charged: The New Movement to Transform American Prosecution and End Mass Incarceration, Flom, Jackson, and additional special guests will discuss the current state of the criminal justice system, what needs to change in order to save lives, and what you can do to help.Buy tickets/get more info now
