Our criminal justice system has become light on ‘justice’ and heavy on incarceration for profit.   This system preys on low income people and people of color, keeping them in revolving door lives of prison to streets and back. The system as it works now is tantamount to a perpetuation of slavery.  But there is hope.  Host Susan McCabe talks with Thrett Brown, leader and spokesperson for Numbers to Names, a group of folks committed to helping people stay out of jail once they’re released.  You will be shocked to learn that paying one’s debt to society doesn’t stop with time served.  Tune in.  It’s sure to be REAL.
