Ellie 2.0 Radio – July 13, 2020

Our featured idealist is WNBA and MN Lynx star Maya Moore, who paused her red-hot career in part to work on criminal justice reform, which included working to free Jonathan Irons, who was wrongly-convicted of a crime at age 16. He’s now 40 and just released from prison thanks to Maya’s help. The Big Interview is with Alberder Gillespie, a candidate for MN’s 4th Congressional District and founder of Black Women Rising. In my C-Block, I talk about reconnecting with my 15-year-old mentee, Jasmine.
