Interview with David Johnson


David Johnson is an activist and community organizer in Austin, Texas. He is the Criminal Justice Organizer for Grassroots Leadership, He says in his interview, "I want to see things like people saying no one needs to go to prison for life. No one deserves to be executed. I don't know that we will ever achieve that but that's what I like to think we're always shooting for. Do we have to put this person in jail? Do we have to ruin this person's life or their career or their ability to have a career or go to school or to get on a lease like is that what we are about? Because when we are about that, the end result is people get stuck in an incubator waiting to die from a disease that no one's ever seen before."
