The leader of an organization whose mission is to assist in the progression of civil, social, and cultural understanding for all people goes undercover as a felon at a local jail… Justice and Civil Rights Initiative founder Ed Moore III is participating in the Anniston City Mock Inmate Project at the Anniston City Jail. It is a campaign he created after having the desire to experience incarceration. Moore says he met with Anniston Police Chief Shane Denham and Anniston City Manager Brian Johnson to explain his motives. And his motives include setting the right kind of example for area youth. Moore works closely with officials in the criminal justice system and plans to meet with Anniston city leaders and share his experience. He says he will also meet with Calhoun County leadership and discuss ways to facilitate positive relationships with ex-inmates.
