Please join us tonight for an interview with Bobby Binford. Binford is a native american activist who has been incarcerated for 48 of his 62 years of life including numerous years in isolation. Binford describes incarceration as being "buried alive" and has been fighting for the right to practice his traditional native american religious practice during Covid. As an elder he helps mentor younger incarcerated folks facing life in prison without parole. As an educator he reaches out to folks on the outside to talk about the role that trauma plays in shaping the life of incarcerated persons and the injustice of life without the possibility of parole sentences.
