    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.

    Independent Everything: LIVE with Platinum R&B Recording Artist ~ Rome

    in Music

    Smooth R&B performer Jerome Woods, born in Benton Harbor, Michigan,
    is better known by his stage name Rome. He sang along with his mother’s soul
    records (Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke) as well as in the local church choir. He
    joined an R&B cover band named Fire & Ice while still in high school and quickly
    began traveling the region performing in local clubs and talent contests as a solo
    act and with the band.



    Rome left Oakwood University in 1989 to pursue his dream of becoming
    an R&B singer on the West Coast. He quickly began touring as a back-up
    vocalist with R&B singer/songwriters Patti LaBelle and Vesta known for hits
    "Once Bitten, Twice Shy", "Sweet Sweet Love", "Special," and her 1989 hit and
    signature song, "Congratulations,” in addition to performing in industry
    showcases.



    Finally, in 1996 Rome was connected with record producers Gerald
    Balilergeau and Victor Meritt who sent his demo tape to RCA Records. The label
    signed him immediately and he began working on his debut album, self-titled
    ROME, which was released in April 1997. The album soon ascended to #30 on
    the Album charts, mainly on the strength of the single, "I Belong to You 
    (Everytime I See Your Face)," which peaked at #6 in the United States. Rome
    had two Top 40 hits from the album, and it was certified platinum.


    In 2001 he returned with two albums: To The Highest and To Infinity
    (Thank You); the last one is just an alternative edition of Rome2000: Thank
    You. Do It followed in 2003, and three years later Sony issued The Best of
    Rome.


    Rome has just released his new single, “Close to You” on iTunes!
    Check out his website at www.Rome2You.com for booking contact information
    and upcoming tour dates.
