Move It Forward Podcast

The Move It Forward podcast shares perspectives about the criminal justice system you won't normally hear on mainstream media platforms. The podcast partners with Philadelphia community members to build their own platforms, raise their own voices, and tell our own stories, the way they need to be told. The podcast was featured on Philadelphia Inquirer's "45 Philly podcasts to listen to right now."

Focus areas
Policing and Community Safety

Amistad Law Project (ALP) will use the 2020 Community Voices grant to amplify the voices of people in communities impacted by mass incarceration and policing. In response to the uprising, the project will highlight and promote the voices of directly impacted people in the work to create alternatives to policing and reimagine the institutions and practices that lead to safer communities. ALP will train community members to use media and media-making to tell their stories of safety and alternatives to policing such as unarmed first responders trained in de-escalation techniques.
