EP 9 - Bianca Tylek on Her Fight Against the Prison Telecom Industry

In this episode

Hey everyone, Mike Novogratz here. My latest guest on Next with Novo is an absolute rock star of the criminal justice reform space, Executive Director of non-profit advocacy group Worth Rises, Bianca Tylek. Born to a family of immigrants, Bianca turned around a rough upbringing that exposed her to the troubles of the juvenile system. At a young age, Bianca suffered an extreme traumatic event, further exposing her to the effect of crime and injustice on young people and their families. Bianca eventually turned things around and found her footing in higher education, graduating from Columbia University, setting her up for a successful career on Wall Street before getting an additional degree from Harvard Law. She eventually transitioned into the non-profit space, using her finance and legal expertise to challenge institutions that profit off of the prison industry and structures like solitary confinement and pre-trial bail. Bianca is a fighter through and through and joined me for a powerful conversation about her current reform work, where she finds drive and inspiration, and some of the most significant issues currently being focused on at Worth Rises.
