If You Want to Hold People Accountable, You’ve Got to Speak Up

Prophet Walker In the Green Room

Prophet Walker helped create a Youthful Offender Pilot Program in California prisons and is a founding member of the Anti-Recidivism Coalition. After being incarcerated as a teenager, he went on to graduate from college, and recently ran for California State Assembly. Before participating in a panel on why California and America have so many people in prison, he talked about torturous childhood nicknames, his love of Mexican food, and the life-changing advice he received in juvenile hall in the Zócalo green room.
