Celebrating Emerging Equity Leaders: Mark-Anthony Johnson

This quarter, we highlight the work of Mark-Anthony Johnson, director of health and wellness with Dignity and Power Now, a grassroots organization based in Los Angeles that fights for the dignity and power of incarcerated people, their families, and communities. Dignity and Power Now has several campaigns, including establishing comprehensive and effective civilian oversight of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and allocating the money from the $2 billion jail plan into mental health diversion programs and community health centers.
