Bread and Roses on 06/14/13
Bread and Roses welcomes the women behind The Concertina Wire, a weekly radio program on KWVA Eugene 88.1FM and kwvaradio.org. The show highlights the written work and narrative stories of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals–particularly women and minorities. It features poetry, prose, music, interviews and news—by, for, and with currently or formerly incarcerated individuals, their families, and friends. “The program provides a unique and positive outlet for this population and empowers guests to have a public voice.”
The show strives to raise awareness of the positive impact that educational programs have in correctional facilities, especially in helping to reduce recidivism, and highlights topics related to incarceration, such as addiction, domestic violence, child abuse, bullying, violence, and more.
Bread and Roses will speak with founder, Lauren Lea, and guest-turned-host, Carrie Zumbrum, about the history, impact, and future of this unique and vital program.
Hosted by Leigh Anne Kranz and Delphine Criscenzo
