This week we will be joined by Joshua Kezer, a Columbia, MO resident wrongly incarcerated as a youth for 16 years, and Tracy McClard, who lost her son to suicide in an adult prison and is a national spokesperson with the Campaign for Youth Justice, as well as a Parent Organizer for Families and Friends Organizing for the Reform of Juvenile Justice of Missouri (FORJ-MO). FORJ-MO is being launched to reduce the number of kids in the adult criminal justice system, remove all of them from adult jails and prisons, and advocate for youth who are certified as adults to be allowed to enter Missouri's Dual Jurisdiction program. Tune in to hear what Kezer and McClard think about the program.
