The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.

Of course you know that poor people, especially people of color, face a far greater risk of being fined, arrested, and even incarcerated for minor offenses than other Americans. Less well-known known are the new and growing trends which increase the criminalization of being poor that affect or will affect hundreds of millions of Americans.
Karen Dolan exposes the facts about a national crisis in a provocative report, The Poor Get Prison. This report provides an understanding of the growing ways in which those in poverty are disproportionately targeted, marginalized, and prosecuted.

Glen writes both fiction and nonfiction from his forty-year career and experience as a trial lawyer and consultant in international business and banking.
His nonfiction work as the observer in The Prison Trilogy tells the tales in chronological order of how he came to be a lawyer for a Wall Street Journal heiress and her gay husband and how that representation landed him in federal prison. That is the first in The Trilogy. The second book tells the story of his cell mate, Colonel George Trofimoff, serving life for spying for the KGB, and the final book of The Trilogy describes the prisoners, Glen's experiences and takes a hard look at the American criminal justice system.

Tune into another episode on The Every Woman Talk Show with host Oolie Wells as she address an important topic on incarceration of our community's black men and the affects of this nationwide action. Join Oolie and special guest on this strong topic at 7:00pm (EST)
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.
