Green Party Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins

Please join us this week on Prison Pipeline as we talk with Green Party Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins as we discuss the police use of force and strategies for ending mass incarceration on Prison Pipeline.  Hawkins, a longtime advocate of criminal justice reform, has advocated for issues such as the abolition of bail for misdemeanors and non violent felonies, an end to civil asset forfeiture without a conviction, re-establishment of the tuition assistance program for prisoners to enroll in community college, an end to long term solitary confinement and an end to felony disenfranchisement.  In line with FCC equal access laws, the republican and democratic candidates for president have also been invited as will other candidates who qualify for the Oregon ballot to discuss issues as they relate to mass incarceration and criminal justice reform.

Prison Pipeline is a radio program dedicated to educating the public about the Oregon criminal justice system. Our goal is to present a unique understanding of the criminal justice system, address the root causes of crime, and challenge the status quo. We seek to promote awareness and activism in order to foster a safe, healthy, and just society.Tune in every Monday at 6:30 P.M. to hear our hosts Karen James, Adam Carpinelli, Amy Johnson, Emma Lugo, Doug McVay and Isabelle Sinclar explore the Oregon justice system with a variety of guests.
