TED Salon featuring Jarrell Daniels, Justice in Education Scholar

Our colleague, Jarrell, an Open Society Youth Activist Fellow, Annie E. Casey Youth Advisory Council member and Justice-in-Education Scholar at Columbia University, is now featured by national non-profit powerhouse, ‘TED’ for his recent TED Talk: Education Everywhere. In his talk, Jarrell promotes the advancement of joint educational experiences that build functional bridges between incarcerated people and those entrusted to govern our criminal justice system.

Jarrell himself spent six years in prison where he was enrolled alongside prosecutors in a unique class called Inside Criminal Justice. The seminar course, a combined effort between the Center for Justice at Columbia University, the Institute for Innovation in Prosecution at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the District Attorney of New York (DANY) Academy, continue to inform Jarrell’s  work since his release.

Congratulations Jarrell!
