Avalon Betts-Gaston on the JustUs Speaks Podcast
February 22, 2023
She was wrongfully convicted, went to prison believing people behind bars were “bad people,” and found herself lifted from a dark place by the women incarcerated with her who she was taught to fear. Today she is fighting for her fellow women and girls both inside prisons and after re-entry. Avalon Betts-Gaston joins the #JustUs Speaks Podcast.
Note: The voting rights legislation Avalon speaks about on the podcast unfortunately did not pass in December, but she is still fighting for it to be passed in 2023! Read her powerful op-ed in the Chicago Sun-Times.
