Prison Pipeline is a radio program dedicated to educating the public about the Oregon criminal justice system. Topics include incarceration and re-entry, addictions and mental health, elections and laws, victims' rights, and criminal justice reform. Guests range from service providers, state and county administrators, advocates and educators to people currently and formerly in prison and their loved ones. 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 evening at 6:30 to hear our hosts Carlos Chavez, Karen James, and Peter Pincetl explore the Oregon justice system with a variety of guests. Hosts rotate weekly. Prison Pipeline's engineer is Danielle Parks.
