Justice Rising at the LESGC

Cheryl Wilkins of Justice Rising and William Electric Black led an important conversation about youth violence in the LES, policing, incarceration, and organizing for social justice in the city and beyond.  They were joined by youth activist, Talesha Duncan, who talked about how she became an advocate, lobbying in Albany and creating a documentary about how families are impacted by incarceration. The workshop ended with an inspiring talk with Lucille Songhai, Director of Community Affairs for the Manhattan Borough President’s office.
