"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.

She shared her experience teaching writing and poetry at the Residential Alcohol/Drug (RAD) Community Justice Juvenile Services from 2006-2008.

Winners and losers in 2011 Oregon legislative session

program date: 
Thu, 07/07/2011

Host Jo Ann Bowman conducts a review of the recent 2011 Oregon legislative session.  Tax payers are funding more for prisons, and less for just about everything else -- we can thank Kevin Mannix and the passage of his measure 57 for mandatory sentences. Also thank legislators who "passed the buck" on this issue.  Minority and ethnic groups lost out when House Republicans voted against a cultural competency bill.
