For the final episode of the season, Nyssa's Mia Clarke speaks to Miyhosi Benton, senior associate with New York City's Women & Justice Project, a non-profit organization that advances the leadership and narrative power of women directly impacted by incarceration to transform the criminal justice system. Miyhosi experienced pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum during her period of incarceration and was illegally shackled despite a 2009 law designed to protect women from this barbaric practice. Miyhosi was a leader in the successful campaign to pass the 2015 Anti-Shackling law banning the shackling of incarcerated pregnant women in New York State, the most progressive law of its kind in the nation.
