Jaws of Justice Radio investigates how we can achieve justice from a system of laws deeply rooted in economic, social and political inequality.  We hope you will listen.

On March 11th, Jaws of Justice will broadcast host David Bell’s Justice Series, part five, a talk with Sheila Albers, Community Activist, about the intersection of justice and access to information.

Sheila Albers is a mother, educator, speaker, design-thinker and systems innovator.  Her work locally and nationally to create more human-centered health, government and education systems, has been a labor of love born out of tragedy.  In 2018, Sheila lost her 17-year-old son, John, when he was shot 13-times in a police involved shooting.   She found herself feeling helpless due to state laws, and powerless from the legal system.  She has founded JOCO United, a citizen advocacy group committed to fostering partnerships between law enforcement, government, and the community to improve safety, transparency, and mental health response.


Sheila has always fought for innovation to create a better future for children, parents and her community.  As a former middle school Principal, she led the charge to redesign middle school education.  Sheila hopes to show how applying continuous design thinking can innovate systems and allow communities to thrive.

On Jaws of Justice, we examine how to find justice in our society.  Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.
