Watch the video now on our Events Page. MiAngel Cody wanted to be an activist since she was a teenager. Now she picks locks to human cages by defending hundreds of people in federal court and achieving a range of courtroom victories - from jury acquittals to successful federal appeals to significantly reduced sentences. In their live chat today, she and Arielle discussed the false assumptions around inmates, the school-to-prison pipeline, and the reforms that are necessary to revolutionize a racist, antiquated, unjust system. MiAngel is the founder & executive director of The Decarceration Collective. She has won presidential clemency and freedom for five prisoners serving life sentences.
