FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JACKSON, Miss - ACLU of Mississippi announced today the launch of a new 8-episode podcast series called For All. Hosted by ACLU of Mississippi's Candace Coleman, this podcast offers lessons for every Mississippian on how to build power for all people.
"In the past year, many have asked us how they can be a better ally to marginalized communities. So, we’re giving listeners actions they can take to help shape a better Mississippi, while also uplifting the stories of people impacted by discrimination, racism, and injustice. This podcast is an acknowledgement that if one person’s liberties are imposed upon, then we are all at risk,” said Communications Director Candace Coleman.
The series' first season begins with discussions about immigrants' rights. Hear from a DACA recipient, a factory worker impacted by an ICE raid, and a lifelong organizer fighting to overcome discrimination and empower their community. The second half of the season focuses on the history and solutions to racial gerrymandering, redistricting abuse and access to voting.
Available on 18 podcast listening platforms, For All focuses on the people and projects that promote civil liberties and civil rights in Mississippi.
