Rethinking Oregon's justice system, to invest fewer dollars in prison beds and more for services

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod look at the issue of reinvesting some of Oregon's massive corrections budget and a new campaign called "Stand Strong for Safety and Savings." Activists say the prison budget continues to climb, while programs that work to prevent crime are critically under-funded. What do you think? Call in with your questions and comments.

Guests are Cassandra Villanueva, the Director of Organizing and Advocacy at Partnership for Safety and Justice and Paul Solomon who heads "Sponsors," a nonprofit re-entry service for people released from prison.
