    Human Rights for Prisoners March: Successful Reentry vs. Recidivism

    in Politics Progressive

    Human Rights for Prisoners March, hosted by Mary Neal. 9pm Pacific Time. Call (818) 572-2947 to speak on air.


    Fighting mass incarceration must also include reducing recidivism. Prisoners face challenges being released from prison, including (a) the loss of good time programs, (b) unresponsive pardons and parole boards, (c) mandatory sentencing laws. Some released prisoners face tremendous challenges getting acclimated back into society, including (1) poor employment prospects, (2) lack of family and community support, and (3) expenses related to their release, i.e., ankle bracelets, probation fees. Ex-convicts who served sentences for certain offenses may be denied voting rights, and many are ineligible for government programs offering subsistence assistance and educational benefits. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent. Recidivism is even higher among released inmates who have acute mental illness and were released from prison without arrangements for their continued psychiatric treatment.


    Human Rights for Prisoners March provides:




    Advocacy for adequate defense, fair trials, drug courts, mental health courts, post-conviction DNA tests, safe and humane incarceration, and successful re-entry.



    Advocacy against prisoner abuse, avoidable deaths caused by police and corrections officers, solitary confinement, children tried and sentenced as adults, criminalizing mental illness, inadequate health care, wrongful convictions, law of parties, three-strikes law, enforced prison labor, and capital punishment.




    Guests include people who have experienced, or who have specialized knowledge about, prison conditions and overuse of force by police or correctional officers, or any subject related to crime and punishment, including improvements proposed or realized.

    AFTER PRISON: WHO'S THERE TO HELP?

    in Current Events

    AFTER PRISON: WHO’S THERE TO HELP?


    The United States incarcerates more of its citizens than any other nation, with a jail and prison population that increased from 200,000 to a staggering 2.3 million in the past 40 years.  But what happens to all those people after they serve their time and go back into their communities? Not surprisingly, the barriers to living after incarceration are staggering.  They face employment discrimination, denial of public benefits and food stamps for their families, exclusion from housing, and let’s not forget that even voting rights are taken away for some. 


    So what do we do to help make sure these folks don’t return to crime and are able to build their lives?


    An organization called “Root and Rebound” in California is helping former prisoners with social support, legal services, education, training, advocacy and litigation.


    Our guests this week are Katherine Katcher, founder and executive director of the program, who earned her law degree from UC Berkeley, and Sonja Tonnesen, deputy director at Root & Rebound.  These women will join us to talk about the problems and social issues surrounding those released from prison and share some of their successes and ideas for helping the formerly incarcerated rejoin society.

    Dave Koch Joins Human Rights for Prisoners March: From Prison to the Ivory Tower

    in Politics Progressive

    Dave Koch experienced unprecedented success after parole. He joins "Human Rights for Prisoners March" to talk about how to make a successful re-entry or "slay the dragon" in whatever listeners face. Koch did it! Call-in at 818-572-2947. Visit Koch's website, "Self Reinvention" http://www.selfreinvention.org

    Koch served sentences of 18 mo. to 5 yrs. in federal and state prisons, then went on to become a pilot. Later he was co-founder, president, CEO and chairman of the 68th fastest growing company in America - Fiber Network Solutions. Koch's company helped build the infrastructure of the Internet in North America. Koch authored "Slaying the Dragon," a book to inspire us all to overcome obstacles in our lives. Even released prisoners like himself can make it to the ivory tower.

    "Don't tell me that you can't have a great life after serving time in prison! It requires work, and just don't quit!" ~Dave Koch

    "The Urban News" published an article in 2009 about Koch, ex-con who became highly successful, called "Ex-Con Turned CEO Declares: 'Accept Self-Blame and Re-Invent Yourself!'"

    The Cosmic Awakening Show: Born Into Slavery- How To Escape The Prison Matrix

    in Spirituality

    This week host Michelle Walling speaks with the hosts of How To Escape The Prison Matrix's Alan Stockdale and Paul Massey. Did you know that every human on the planet was born into slavery? The system that is set up from birth to rob us of our energy is a part of the matrix. The matrix is a holographic illusion that has been imposed upon the planet, it is our jail cell. Why are we in prison and how can we escape? We will share our ideas with you and would love to hear from you in the second half of the show!


    Here is the link to Escape the Prison Matrix's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/733004286795147/

    What is it like to be in a For-Profit PRISON?

    in Health

    Join us as we talk with a grandmother who served jail time for growing a plant for personal medicinal use. 


    Find out why prisoners are forced to wear each other’s underwear:  How prisons procure magazine subscriptions using your name:  How only a small portion of the funds you send to prisoners end up in the hands of the intended recipient.  Find out how you can be kept in prison if you cannot pay for your keep while incarcerated so that you are only there because you are in debt to the for-profit prison.


    Guards who care are demeaned while Guards who are abusive are rewarded.


    Like our health care system, our prison system is meant to make money, not deter or reform prisoners.

    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real - Recidivism in USA

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real features our host, a man who was incarcerated in Georgia prisons for 46 years, 15 of them in solitary confinement - from 1968 to 2013. Call-in at (347) 857-3293 each Friday. Strozier was initially arrested at age 6, when he and friends broke into an Atlanta warehouse to steal cigarettes for family members and candy. He was incarcerated at age 10. His sentence was lengthened to 90 years after cutting a prison guard as a teenager in an adult facility. Strozier's warden told him he would die in prison, but he did not. Strozier changed. Strozier became a Christian in the 1980s, then graduated from high school, became a certified cook and brick mason, and got married while still behind bars. Prison officials and the State Board of Pardons and Paroles recognized the change in Strozier and eventually paroled him. Since prison release, Strozier works, counsels youths, and attends church regularly. Strozier has many interesting stories to tell that inspire youths to avoid incarceration and motivate released prisoners not to recidivate. America's recidivism rate is over 65 percent. Email Johnny Strozier at 
    JohnnyR.Strozier@gmail.com



    Hear Strozier's debut broadcast of June 3, 2014, archived at Blogtalkradio for access any day or time.
