    Johnny Strozier Keeping It Real (a reentry show) 04/25/15

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013 when he was in his mid-50's. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and stay out of prison. The call-in number is (347)857-3293 at 9pmEST every Saturday night to speak with Johnny and his guests to make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration and encourage released prisoners to think right, act right, and then expect their lives to go right.


    America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at astronomical rates, and prisoners are released every day. Johnny offers advice and information that will help redirect them.


    Johnny's assembly of guests usually include a former prison chaplain and representatives from churches in and around Atlanta who offer subsistence assistance as well as spiritual advice and the opportunity to unite in fellowship with a body of believers who will encourage continued success for those reentering the community after prison release. This show is based in Christianity, but all people are welcome.

    MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting 04/19/2015: No Deserters or Draft Dodgers

    in Politics Progressive

    "


    MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting" begins a new series called "Draft Dodgers Will Be Prosecuted" on Sunday, April 12 at 9pmPST. Actually, the title should say, "Deserters AND Draft Dodgers Will Be Prosecuted," because not everyone who enlisted in God's army stayed. Many walked away from the light. Jesus works WITH and THROUGH people of faith (Joshua 14, 15). The battle is the Lord's, but every Christian  is called to participate in His battle (Proverbs 31:8-9). Draft dodgers will be prosecuted (Luke 6:46). Previous "MaryLovesJustice Prayer Meeting" broadcast series include a four-part message on "Gen. 6:4 Giants Among Men" and a two-part message titled "The Secret Rapture Already Began." All broadcasts at our NNIA1 channel and Human Rights Demand channel are archived for future access 24/7 and are free and open to the public. Call in during live shows to comment or ask questions. Hear an archived prayer meeting today from the broadcasts available at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/nnia1

    "AIMI vs. USA" re Circumventing Successful Reentry: Goolsby 04/18/15

    in Politics Progressive

    An "AIMI vs. USA" claimant, Ms. Goolsby, will report at 9pmEST Saturday, April 18, Listen to the live broadcast via phone to make comments at (818)572.2947. She says her mentally ill son was recently re-arrested after being out of prison on parole for two years and denied his social security and Medicaid because Georgia's prison system refused to furnish the Social Security Admn. with documentation proving that he was a psychiatric inmate who was treated for mental illness throughout his incarceration. He lived homeless for most of the time he was out of prison. He passed 13 drug tests, but finally got so frustrated with being broke and hungry that he failed one and tested positive for #marijuana . Therefore, his parole was revoked. Before prison, he had received disability income since he was a small child. His mother reports that due to the Georgia #prison system's noncooperation with the Social Security Admin., he could not make it and rejoined the 1.25 million mentally ill prisoners in the USA. Reasons like this cause America to have a 67.5 percent #recidivism  rate. A disability #lawyer was working with the family to get the documentation from Georgia and resume the disabled young man's social security, and he had a job for a short while, but ...

    The tape will be available for listening any time after the live show on Blogralkradio. Thank you for giving Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill. Whether or not you have relatives who suffer persecution for having mental illness, you are taxpayers who pay prison investors to warehouse America's mentally ill people.

    in Politics Progressive

    Johnny Strozier spent over 45 years in the Georgia prison system, from age 10 in 1968 until 2013, when he was middle age. He joined us on "Human Rights Demand" to encourage others to keep the faith and their freedom.

They often discuss employment opportunities, reentry programs, and subsistence assistance.


    Strozier and his guests make a human rights demand to stop mass incarceration, and they recognize that part of the cause is low expections of success by ex-offenders. Strozier says if a man will think right, he will act right, and things will go right in his life.  America has a recidivism rate of 67.5 percent, indicating that released prisoners need encouragement and practical help to successfully reenter society. Youths are still going to jail at high rates, and Strozier shares advice and information that can help to redirect them. Tune in, and call to speak on air.
