Joe Hayden was recently featured on PolitickerNJ.com for his involvement from the 1960’s to the present in the Civil Rights Movement.  In the article, Joe shares some of his memories from the March on Selma and discusses his current involvement in ending mass incarceration and supporting prisoner re-entry.   “So much has been accomplished in the way of legal rights, and yes, there is so much left to be accomplished in the way of healing economic disparity and economic segregation. There is still a burning problem between the police and the community; in fact, the Newark riots started because of arrests and that persists to this day.”
