Sara Totonchi is the Executive Director of the Southern Center for Human Rights, a non-profit law form which works to exonerate and mitigate those who are impacted by the criminal legal system in the Deep South. During this past election cycle, Sara oversaw 17,000 absentee ballots delivered to voters who are currently in jail.

Every day, Sara fights the southern tradition for cruel and unusual punishment, and that includes the crime of being poor. In this episode, Rose talks to Sara about how prison conditions have worsened during COVID19, and about Sara's formative experiences growing up European-Iraqi in the United States at the time of the Persian Gulf War, and the impact of a blue Senate and its new Senators.
