Zachary Crow is the director of decARcerate, a grassroots coalition working to end mass incarceration in Arkansas with and on behalf of prisoners and their families. DecARcerate works through a combination of community education, smart legislation, advocacy, and activism. Crow spent two years living alongside and learning from homeless, incarcerated, and formerly incarcerated individuals in Atlanta, Georgia as a part of the Open Door Community, a residential community in the Catholic Worker tradition seeking to dismantle racism, sexism, and heterosexism, abolish the death penalty and proclaim the Beloved Community through loving relationships with some of the most neglected and outcast: the homeless and those in prison.
Zachary is a radio personality, storyteller, filmmaker, and poet. Along with Judge Wendell Griffen, Crow hosts “The Barbershop Radio Hour,” a week call-in show centering around issues of social justice on KABF 88.3. His first feature-length documentary, “We See No Enemy,” was released in March 2013 and chronicles five Palestinian stories from the West Bank. His first book of poetry, “Dancing In The Eddies” was released in April 2018.
Crow serves as an ordained minister with New Millennium Church in Little Rock, Arkansas, which describe themselves as “progressive, welcoming, inclusive followers of Jesus.”
