In the first half of the program, peace organizer Medea Benjamin looks at the Biden Administration’s foreign policy, and finds it mainly a disappointment for many progressives who may have voted for the Democrat. Then Rebecca Grace and John Gray introduce the Complete Picture Project, an organization that assembles videos of nonviolent offenders facing sentencing, so that a sentencing judge will learn more about an offender’s entire life, including family and community connections, rather than only the criminal record.
The organization’s web site is www.completepicture.org
