EP 31 - ­­­­­­­­Robert Rooks | Creating Solutions for Effective Social Justice Reform

In this episode

This week's episode of Next with Novo features the CEO of REFORM Alliance, Robert Rooks. REFORM Alliance is a criminal justice organization focused on transforming probation and parole systems.

We begin by discussing Robert's childhood, growing up in Dallas surrounded by community-wide hardship, and how loss inspired him to work towards systems change. We speak in-depth about REFORM Alliance, his belief in adapting solutions to the country's changing climate and moving to the center of the issue via public discourse and conversation. We wrap the episode by speaking to the importance of resource allocation to support grassroots community organizers dealing with probation and parole to reform a system that impacts nearly 4.5 million people in America.
