S2 Justice | Will Snowden: Transforming the Criminal Legal System
Show Notes

“If our criminal legal system actually made people safer, Louisiana would be the safest place in the country.”

One of Will’s first interactions with the police happened during cross country practice in high school. The experience forever reshaped how he understood race, policing, and justice. Today, he is on the forefront of transforming the criminal legal system to bring justice to the most incarcerated state of the most incarcerated country in the world: Louisiana. 

Will serves as the Director of the New Orleans office of the Vera Institute of Justice, an organization committed to securing equal justice, ending mass incarceration, and strengthening families and communities.
