Jeff Durkin with We Are Change CT caught up with Activist Cecily McMillan 2 days after her release from Rikers Island after serving 58 days for Felony Assault. We discussed her release and her statement she gave at a press conference outside Rikers after her release detailing a list of demands from female inmates currently incarcerated at Rikers. We also discuss her trial, the implications of mass incarceration, the court support model & more.
