This is one of the BEST episodes we have ever been apart of, thanks to Syrita Steib-Martin.

Syrita, a Lousiana native and founder/executive director of Operation Restoration, is a leading voice in all things criminal justice. After spending her entire 20's in federal prison, Syrita has become a national advocacy leader.  

In this ep of DEcarcerated, Syrita speaks about her experiences with physical violence as child, to addressing the importance of advocating for change in the criminal justice system even if that requires meeting with Donald Trump and Jared Kushner.
