Social justice advocate Evelyn LaChapelle offers the Motif community a glimpse into the impact the War on Drugs has had on people of color. As a board member of The Last Prisoner’s Project, Evelyn and the non-profit are devoted to criminal justice reform for the over 40,000 people incarcerated for cannabis crimes at all stages, including clemency, release, reentry, and record expunging. In her conversation with host Shanetta, Evelyn opens up about the life experiences and relationships, that led to her 87 month prison sentence for a minor role in a marijuana distribution operation, propelling her into her life’s work.
