Prison Reform Needs

Mon January 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Gil Halstead hosts a program about prison reform needed in Wisconsin.   It’s a mix of discussion and music.

Prison doors slam on close to 3000 people in Wisconsin each year. They are people on parole or probation locked up not for committing a crime but for breaking a rule of their supervision like missing a meeting or drinking a beer. Sending them back to prison costs taxpayers 148 million every year.  Two members of EXPO (Ex Prisoners Organizing) join Gil to talk about an effort to get the State Legislature to act.   They’re focusing on the issue of Parole Revocation but also touching on the issues of solitary confinement, and mental health care in prison, about the negative consequences of these policies and efforts to change them.
