ON THE COUNT: The Prison and Criminal Justice Report is a 60 minute news and talk program featuring analysis, commentary, policy recommendations and action plans. It is broadcast from the perspective of people formerly incarcerated for stakeholders involved in criminal justice public policy formulation, law, research, legislation, reform litigation, social service provision, advocacy and activism. The program’s objective is to provide a forum for the discussion of criminal justice, political, community economic development and prison issues not regularly heard on traditional mainstream corporate media. It is designed to create a platform for the voices of those historically excluded from the discussion and decision making process, yet who are most directly affected by the process.
