It's been 15 years since Oregon voters passed Measure 11, setting mandatory sentences in criminal cases. Just as a new Governor's Commission on Public Safety begins examining prison costs and their causes, a new report by the Partnership for Safety and Justice (PSJ) and the Campaign for Youth Justice says Measure 11 has meant more Oregon youths being charged as adults.

Associate Director and co-author of the report, as well as Matt (last name omitted). Matt spent seven and a half years in the Oregon Youth Authority. He shares some of his experiences with Measure 11 and his time at the McLaren youth facility in Woodburn.

Short Description: 
"Concrete, Steel, and Paint," a film documents what happens when men in a Pennsylvania state priso

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher speaks with Tony Heriza, Co-Director/Producer of "Concrete, Steel, and Paint," and Jane Golden, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program. They discuss the film "Concrete, Steel, and Paint," which documents what happens when men in a Pennsylvania state prison join with victims of crime to create a mural about healing and their views on punishment, remorse, and forgiveness collide. Finding consensus is not easy - but as the participants move through the creative process, mistrust gives way to surprising moments of human contact and common purpose.
