There are 1000's of convicted felons that are released each year from American Correctional Institutions. Many of these convicted Felons are unable to secure job training and or jobs when released from jail because of their felony status and as a result return back to a life of crime and end up back in jail. Today we are going to discuss which companies in the United States are Felon-Friendly and ecourage rehabilitation for the convicted felon instead of a life of crime.
Welcome to.....“EL BARRIO VERDE”, A WEEKLY POLITICAL RADIO SHOW FROM LA, sponsored by the East Los Angeles Community Law & Civil Rights Center, Self-Help Legal Solutions & Resources for the Entire Community……This is Carlos Montenegro and Bienvenidos to the Neighborhood…!!! ..
The first thing that I want to make clear is that I am a law student and not a lawyer. I am not here today to advocate being uncooperative with legal government authorities and cops. I am here today to offer everyone of the community a free list of companies that hire convicted felons who have recently left the correctional institution and desire to become positive members of society through work programs.

A Public Defender helping drug felons get their felonies reduced to misdemeanors under Prop. 47 and what’s happening with the Jack Herer initiative are the featured topics on this week’s Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense Internet podcast.
Proposition 47 reduced non-violent drug possession offenses from felonies to misdemeanors. Reducing felonies to misdemeanors not only benefits people currently in prison but also those who have served their sentences as having a felony on your record can prevent you from getting a job, housing and a host of other life essentials. Wading through the tortuous legal process to have one’s felony reduced to a misdemeanor is daunting, but help is available. In this case it is in the place one would least likely expect it – San Bernardino County.
Our first guest is Daniel Edber, deputy Public Defender for San Bernardino County, who has undertaken a program to help ex-non-violent drug offenders get their felony convictions reduced to misdemeanors. How the program works, why he is doing it, how successful the program has been and why San Bernardino and how the powers-that-be have reacted to the program will be covered.
The California Cannabis and Hemp Initiative aka The Jack Herer Initiative has vied to be on the ballot for a number of years and 2016 is in their sights again. Considered by many to be one of the best legalization initiatives available, the 2016 initiative still retains at its core the aims and goals of the legendary Jack Herer.
The show’s second guest is Patrick Moore who has worked on past CCHI initiatives and has undertaken one of the leading roles in the 2016 CCHI. How the initiative differs from previous CCHI initiatives, the coalition behind its newest incarnation and their plans to get it on the ballot will be revealed.

There will never be a revolutionary movement in this country that doesn’t fully unleash and give expression to the sometimes openly expressed, sometimes expressed in partial ways, sometimes expressed in wrong ways, but deeply, deeply felt desire to be rid of these long centuries of oppression [of Black people]. There’s never gonna be a revolution in this country, and there never should be, that doesn’t make that one key foundation of what it’s all about.

A growing number of states are pushing inmates out of prison in early release programs designed to reduce overcrowding and save money. But faced with a tight job market and few employers willing to hire someone with a criminal record, many former inmates are likely to end up right back behind bars.
Last month, California began releasing prisoners deemed at low risk for re-offending. Colorado, Oregon, Kentucky and Connecticut, all wracked with budgetary issues, have instituted similar moves as a way to cut costs, while others, including Michigan and Mississippi, are considering similar initiatives.
