new orleans criminal justice reform

Courtesy of StoryCorps

As part of our StoryCorps series on criminal justice, we bring you a conversation between social workers.

Noelle Deltufo and Ginger Parsons are close friends who worked together as social workers for the OPD - Orleans Public Defenders. They discuss the emotional labor that comes with social work and more broadly about systemic injustice.

Safe Streets/Strong Communities is pushing for reforms to city’s criminal justice system, with a focus on police brutality and the toll such incidents take on the relationship between the police force and the community.
