Mary Joel Davis has worked with women in prison and former prisoners for over thirty years. She founded Alternative Directions, which provides legal assistance and re-entry support to women. Recently she founded a new program, Second Chance, to focus on women serving life sentences. She joins us to discuss why she believes many women should be let out of prison early.
