Please join us as we talk with Jagger Blaec and Savina Monet of the Cannabis Workers Coalition on Monday, October 12th at 6:30pm.  We will talk about how Oregon's cannabis industry is blocking access for previously incarcerated people. The sad fact is that those same people that had their lives taken away for possession or distribution pre-legalization are now faced with a probationary period of up to 3 years before they can get any kind of licensing. It is absurd and it is something the CWC has had its sights on since inception. 

Prison Pipeline is a radio program dedicated to educating the public about the Oregon criminal justice system. 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 at 6:30 P.M. to hear our hosts Karen James, Adam Carpinelli, Amy Johnson, Emma Lugo, Doug McVay and Isabelle Sinclar explore the Oregon justice system with a variety of guests.
