By Jim Lynch on Mon, 08/05/2013 - 9:12pm
TUESDAY 1-3:00PM, live on air and on line. our program will feature a look at the failed “War on Drugs” and it’s myriad related issues. we will also look closely at the nuclear disaster in Japan – Fukushima. recent developments have revealed a breach of their “pretend” barrier with the pacific ocean – this is breaking news not for the faint of heart. this is well beyond “brokenness” as we usually frame it.
our featured guest is Glenn Martin, Vice President of Development and Public Affairs and Director of the David Rothenberg Center for Public Policy at The Fortune Society, a non-profit organization devoted to the successful reentry and reintegration of individuals with criminal histories. He also currently serves on the NYC Council Task Force to End Gun Violence, NYS Executive Work for Success Committee, NYS Executive Reentry Housing Committee, NYS Reentry Task Force, the Steering Committee of Reentry.net, the Correction Committee of the NYC Bar Association (adjunct), the Policy Committee of Interfaith Coalition of Advocates for Reentry and Employment (ICARE), the Employment Working Group of the NYC Discharge Planning Initiative, and the Board of Directors of the College and Community Fellowship.
We will also speak with John Bertucci of Fukushima Response, a California activist group that is monitoring the ongoing disaster from Japan.
Our music will feature some blues from The Tedeschi-Trucks Band - they will be at Jones Beach saturday night – The Black Crowes are headlining.
