#58: NAACP President & CEO Derrick Johnson on Clemency, Collateral Consequences, and Criminal Justice Reform
In this episode, we hear from Derrick Johnson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the NAACP, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization. I caught up with Mr. Johnson after a meeting he had in New York concerning the NACDL/FAMM State Clemency Project, which the NAACP is supporting. Mr. Johnson spoke about the NAACP, criminal justice reform, race and the criminal justice system, the collateral consequences of arrest or conviction, and clemency. Learn more about NACDL. Ivan J.
