Watch: Russell Simmons Premieres #SchoolsNotPrisons PSA

Media mogul Russell Simmons has teamed up with Californians for Safety and Justice to promote awareness on the state’s “misappropriation of funds in the justice system at the neglect of the education system.”

In a new #SchoolsNotPrisons PSA, the organizers of the movement’s mission statement calls “for Californians to come together and demand that California replace prison and justice system waste with common sense solutions that create safe neighborhoods and save public dollars.”
