Removing Barriers: A Fair Chance For All
Peter Pincetl interviews Patty Katz with Oregon Action about the new Ban the Box campaign.  Employment and housing are the most important influences for decreasing recidivism and it's time to provide a fair chance for all who work and ban "the box" -- the section of employment applications where applicants must disclose arrest or conviction.  By removing this barrier to employment, we can give a fair chance to thousands of Oregonians who just want to support their families.  Finding and securing adequate housing is one of the most difficult challenges faced by formerly incarcerated people, and homelessness is very prevalent.  Passing Fair Chance Policies is critical to creating a more equitable community.

MacLaren Youth Radio Journalism Part II

program: 
Prison Pipeline
program date: 
Mon, 02/11/2013

Carlos Chavez hosts part two of a two part series on the 2012 highlights of his radio journalism group in MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility.

This time they focus on a field recording exercise that was done by one of the students. He interviews Steve Llanes from the Office of Minority Services and other youth as they prepare for one of the sweat lodge ceremonies at MacLaren.

Carlos facilitates educational workshops at MacLaren for the youth incarcerated there. MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility is the largest facility in Oregon for incarcerating youth. Most of these youth face sentences ranging from 3 to 7 years or longer. During their time on the facility these young men have access to a high school education, college courses and job skills training.

Through an organization called Hope Partnership they are offered additional workshops and classes that expose the youth to creative outlets, literacy and cultural awareness. Morpheus Youth Project, a fiscally sponsored non profit that Carlos runs, collaborates with Hope Partnership to facilitate a Radio Journalism Class (as well as other workshops).

Take a peek into what they were involved in this last year.
