StoryCorps Podcast Series

Posted on November 20, 2015

Glenn Martin and Vivian Nixon

Every day, we encounter community leaders and organizers whose stories deserve to be shared and celebrated. The New York Foundation partnered with StoryCorps to craft a new lot of short-interview series featuring our trustees, grantees, and former grantees in conversations that get to the heart of what matters in their work.

Glenn Martin, founder and president of JustLeadershipUSA, talks with Vivian Nixon, executive director of College and Community Fellowship, about the criminal justice system in the United States and the challenges faced by those formally incarcerated.


Produced and recorded by StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. The interviews afford a raw encounter with the personal trials and triumphs of advocates, and an unmediated perspective on community-driven efforts in New York City.
