tradeoff_signs_storybank.jpg

  

 On the April 8th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our series on police, community, race, and justice by talking about youth community groups that work to keep young people out of jail. They’re also pressuring the state to prioritize jobs and education over jails. What do marginalized youth really need to thrive? And what wisdom can they bring to the conversation about police violence? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guests:

Raj Jayadev, executive director of Silicon Valley De-Bug and organizer for the Albert Cobarrubias Justice Project

Zachary Norris, executive director of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights
