26 May Kat’s Korner: The Podcast | One on One (LIVE) feat. Will Snowden
With the world literally at a standstill, now more than ever it’s important to check in with our friends and community. How are you coping in these unprecedented times? Need a little pick me up? A real-talk session? We got you!
Join Risikat “Kat” Okedeyi and her special guests as they talk through ups and downs of quarantine life, the little joys, the real-world observations, and the tips that keep them on track throughout it all.
Featured Guest: As a felony trial attorney, William Snowden witnesses the discriminatory practices removing jurors from the jury panel. In response to these practices, William created The Juror Project—an initiative aiming to increase the diversity of jury panels while changing and challenging people’s perspective of jury duty. The Juror Project engages the community through informative meetings and group discussions. William presents at high schools, colleges, churches, neighborhood associations, and any other community gatherings to discuss the importance of jury service, the discriminatory practices of some prosecutors, as well as what members can do to actually get on a jury. Follow Will on IG @thejurorproject and @verainstitute. Donations can be made at The Juror Project; The Vera Institute [in honor of New Orleans].
