David Ryan Castro-Harris

Shadeequa Smith has dedicated her career to studying the criminal justice system and understanding its impact on individuals, families, and communities. Her efforts are informed by her work with organizations that improve the transition from incarceration into the community. She has experience in problem solving courts, the U.S. Probation Office, and, most recently, as the director of training for the nonprofit Prison of Peace. She is also a facilitator of the BIPOC book club with Amplify RJ.

In this episode, you will meet Shadeequa (2:07), learn about her connection to Amplify RJ (3:53), and hear about her journey (8:06). She reveals her inspirations (20:00) and her thoughts on the place of restorative justice in the criminal legal system (22:56). She also discusses her motivations and what’s going on in America (31:03), and her role in the future ancestor collective with Amplify RJ (40:34). Finally, she talks about her slip ups and her closing thoughts (43:13).
