First Step

Welcome to First Step, a video series featuring athletes engaging the communities most affected by today’s social issues, from healthcare access and gender equality, to childhood obesity and mental health. Former NBA all-star Jerry Stackhouse travels around the country and meets with athletes to discuss issues that are important to them.

In this episode, Stackhouse speaks with Minnesota Lynx Forward Maya Moore on her work to push for prosecutorial reform in the American justice system. Moore discusses her personal connection with individuals who have been wrongly convicted, the need to fight for and spread awareness about the most vulnerable people in the criminal justice system, and the consequences that follow their sentence for the larger community.
