In the first half of the program, peace organizer Medea Benjamin looks at the Biden Administration’s foreign policy, and finds it mainly a disappointment. Then Rebecca Grace and John Gray introduce the Complete Picture Project, an organization that assembles videos of nonviolent offenders facing sentencing, so that a sentencing judge will learn more about an offender’s entire life, including family and community connections, rather than only the criminal record.
Notes: Medea Benjamin is co-founder of the women’s peace organization Code Pink; she’s also written eight books, including “Inside Iran” and “Kingdom of the Unjust.” Her recent article on Biden’s foreign policy can be found here. Rebecca Grace and John Gray are the founders of the Complete Picture Project. Gray himself served a prison term for crimes related to an old drug habit.
