Johnny Strozier, our host, spent 46 years in Georgia penal system although he says he never murdered or kidnapped anyone. He entered prison as a 10-year-old in 1968 and exited on parole in 2013, having spent essentially a lifeime behind bars. At first, Johnny was rebellious and bitter. He credits his conversion to Christianity for his "new life" as a free man, relatively speaking. Johnny taught himself how to read and write while still incarcerated. He took classes in brick masonry, cooking, and other available subjects and gained proficiency and certification in several trades. He married while still a prisoner and now resides in the Atlanta area with his wife. Johnny Strozier struggles against the odds to make a successful reentry, understanding that "a man must think right and act right so that things will go right in his life." Being a good Christian and a gainfully employed man were Johnny's main priorities after parole.

Strozier assembled a network of individuals, including former prisoners, church members, and human rights advocates, who are dedicated, as he is, to reducing recidivism among prison parolees and encouraging youths to avoid conduct that would lead to incarceration. Please join us most Saturday nights at "Human Rights Demand" for conversations with Strozier and his panel of guest speakers. Encourage your church's prison ministry and outreach team, released prisoners, and young people to please join us and share their ideas on the air live at 9pm Saturdays at 347.857.3293.
