Dr. Alex Gee speaks with three women that have stepped up to learn and advocate for people in the court system. You won’t want to miss hearing about their journeys and how this volunteer work has transformed their perspective on the criminal justice system. Betsey Day, Mary Kateada, Sandi Reinardy, and Karen Reece recommend that people just keep showing up to support the African American community and fighting racism.
Dr. Gee also shares about his experience sitting alongside a local judge for a day in order to get a perspective on the court system.
