Norris Henderson, best known as founder and executive director of Voice of the Experienced (VOTE) and Voters Organized to Educate, joins host Lynda Woolard for the second of a two part interview to talk about his decades of organizing for Criminal Justice Reform, the patience and persistence required for progressive change, and the formula being used by his organizations to win big victories in Louisiana. If you missed Animated by Justice No. 1 please give it a listen, and then come back to this episode, as we pick up where we left off, with a deeper dive on the Unanimous Jury Coalition’s campaign to change the Louisiana constitution.
