In the first installment of a new series of discussions presented by the Drug Policy Alliance’s Movement Building Team, DPA’s asha bandele interviewed Michelle Alexander, the best-selling author of The New Jim Crow. Over 300 people listened in on their conversation which touched on familiar issues – the decriminalization of all drugs, ending mass incarceration – but also delved deeper, allowing Alexander to discuss what truly transformational change means to her, and more personally, what she would like to do next in her own work.
