Q Center's "Volunteer of the Year" Dismissed after Failed Background Check

Portlander Natalie Marie, local LGBT advocacy and service non-profit Q Center's "Volunteer of the Year," has been dismissed after failing a state-mandated criminal background check. 

In her past, Natalie's struggle with addiction landed her in prison for seven years, and then in a halfway house, where she was targeted for her gender identity and denied medical care. 

She argues that her involvement with Q Center has been essential in facilitating her transition out of incarceration. 

But in recent months, she learned of a state statute, ORS 443.004, that says public funds cannot support the employment in any capacity of individuals in "certain positions" if they have "specific convictions."

A recent article in Willamette Week praises the Oregon prison system, claiming the system is one of the best in the nation.  Attorney Mike Snedeker debunks this claim as part of the lobbying effort of the prison-industrial complex to keep prisons funded in the face of declining crime rates.  He talks here with the Old Mole's Jan Haaken.
