Maryam Henderson Uloho of SisterHearts Decarceration Program

Maryam Henderson Uloho is a powerful and inspiring pillar of the greater New Orleans community. On this episode, we discuss her work and mission of decarceration and rehabilitation of those exiting the prison system. Living in the state with the highest population of those imprisoned, Maryam poses the question of what incarceration really means and focuses her work in undoing the harm caused to those caught in the dehumanizing world of the American prison system. This conversation is heavy but important.
