    Making Choices: There is Life After Incarceration

    in Self Help

      She currently serves as the Chief Administrative Officer for East Side University in Houston, Texas. Dr. Smith's most recent and most esteemed accomplishment has been the completion of her true life story "Choices". Choices was written during an 18 month incarceration experience and has become a message of hope and redemption for many. This story is resonating with both youth and adults because of the courage and tenacity in which it was written.  Post-incarceration, Dr. Sandra D. Smith has become an advocate for re-rentry and teaches tools to survive the stigma attached to incarceration.

    Big Business Incarceration: The US Prison System

    in News

    At the end of 2009, 743 adults were incarcerated per 100,000 of the population. According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2,266,800 adults were incarcerated in U.S. federal and state prisons, and county jails at the end of 2011.  Additionally, 4,814,200 adults were on probation or on parole at the end of 2011.   Equally 6,977,700 adults were under correctional supervision (probation, parole, jail, or prison) at the end of 2011. 


    On this episode, we’re going to address the rising number of incarcerations, as well as the issues of housing these inmates.  Being that prisons and incarceration is BIG BUSINESS, and has a revenue of more than $1.7 Billion annually, it's not surprising that there are plans to build more jails and prisons, as well as the reconstruction of current facilities to accommodate the projection of housing more inmates.


    We are pleased to have a well versed panel that will address these issues:


    Our sponsor and great friend, Vonya Quarls of Shades of Afrika, will address the construction and realignment plans. Fanya Baruti will be speaking on the alternatives to jail expansion, and Diana Zuniga will cover the California State Court order and budget.


    Please join us for this enlightening topic on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 9pm PST/ 11pm CST/ 12 Midnight EST. 


    You’re welcome to phone in live on-air to (646)200-3148.  Or listen online and join the chatroom conversation.

    The School To Prison Pipeline In America

    in Moms and Family

     It is unconscionable but true the arrest rate in America has gone down but the prison incarceration rate has exponentially gone up! The inner city needless to say has the greatest percentages and people of color are disproportionately affected. Public awareness is necessary for us to make the changes and the will to put forth the effort will require love and courage. The data is undeniable the question is do we have the will to address it.

    Come aboard a trip after the release from prison and the things to become a part of society once released. The first thing the state ask is each person returning outside from prison is to register with the ploice department or sheriff office.

This is a power to grant full or conditional pardons, or commute punishment.

    A Just Cause Coast 2 Coast - Victims Behind U.S. Prison Walls

    in US Government

    Lamont Banks, Dennis Merritt and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.  


    Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Lamont, Dennis and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.


    Our Special Guest for tonight's show is Danny Salado, who is advocating to stop prison abuse and neglect in our U.S. prisons. He recently lost his brother Ronald Salado on April 2, 2015, who was serving time at a Florence Correctional Complex in Colorado due to prison abuse and neglect of medical treatment.


    A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
