Poussey Washington may have been a fictional character created for television, but her life’s story and devastating fate is all too real for many women in this country. Keep reading to see how you can be both an ally and an accomplice during these critical times.
 
On June 11th, 2020, we presented a live town hall event with cast members from ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK in conversation with leaders, educators, and speakers, in the anti-racism and criminal justice reform communities.
 
The livestream video remains online, and we hope you are able to watch at your leisure. It will be a very special and poignant event that you don't want to miss. You can view the event at Netflix’s YouTube or the OITNB Facebook page .
 
Participating cast members are: Uzo Aduba, Danielle Brooks, Taylor Schilling, Natasha Lyonne, Yael Stone, Laura Prepon, Dascha Polanco, Selenis Leyva, Laverne Cox, Adrienne C. Moore, Kate Mulgrew
 
Featured guests include: Stacey Abrams, Rashad Robinson, Rachel Cargle, Dr. Elizabeth Hinton, Piper Kerman, Andrea James
