JOHN LEGEND

By Jack Barnes

For John Legend, advocacy for drug treatment and prison reform is near to his heart. Throughout his young adulthood, John’s mother, Phyllis, was arrested several times for charges related to drug abuse. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.

Since then, John has been extremely vocal in his beliefs that rather than criminalizing drug addiction, we should be doing everything in our power to provide the treatment necessary for recovery. In hopes to change the conversation about our country’s policies and improve America’s criminal justice system, John says, “I vote to end mass incarceration, I vote for a free America.”
