Sahj Kaya of Exonerate MA People Justice Initiative Inc.
Exonerate MA People Justice Initiative is formulated to address the injustices and the inhumanness of the penal industrial complex, which allows for the existence of a “new Jim crow” 21st century slave trade supported by the 13th amendment that re install slavery through criminal conviction by man made racist and economic biased laws designed to entrap, incarcerate, incapacitate and brutally penalize humans for years for mistakes errors in judgement, lack of knowledge understanding or just being poor. We’re talking about wrongly convicted. Someone who DIDN’T do it.
Host Jamie Jackson talks with Sahj Kaya Founder of Exonerate MA People Justice Initiative about their mission to exonerate those who have been falsely convicted. They were joined in the second half of the broadcast by Latahra Smith of the KC Freedom Project and phone calls from our listeners.
