Check out the latest “Reasonably Suspicious” podcast from Just Liberty, hosted by your correspondent and Amanda Marzullo of the Texas Defender Service. This month’s episode features an excerpt from an interview with House Corrections Chair James White (I’ll publish our full conversation later in the week) plus a discussion of a new petition for rule making, which will be submitted on Monday by Just Liberty to the Texas Department of Public Safety, calling for limits on arrests for non-jailable offenses. Also, be among the first to hear the new, original music produced for the podcast by Gabe Rhodes and an all-star crew of musicians.
Sukyi McMahon leverages 15+ years’ experience writing and editing, and adds a deep understanding of public education and grassroots activism to help Just Liberty convey the truth about Texas’ criminal justice system. She is also a small business owner/entrepreneur, currently running her family bookstore in Austin. In addition to running her business and raising a family, she is a lead organizer for the Austin Justice Coalition, a rising non-profit whose work in local policy reform, education, civic engagement, and empowerment for communities of color has made them a noteworthy organization to watch. She is driven to continue a multi-faceted approach to effect positive change on the local and state level.
