This is an exceptionally long article. It might be easier to print and read it over breakfast, or at bedtime.

This article is geared toward people who seem to continuously find themselves in adversarial situations, or as sometimes coined, "Stuck in the revolving door of the judicial system." In many instances, an individual finds him or herself stuck in the system, in large part because of whom they continue to associate with. Be aware, your friends may not have your best interest at heart.

For many people who have a less than pristine history, the biggest barrier they face in seeking employment is frequently the fear of disclosing their conviction more than anything else. Ex-offenders cringe at the very thought of having to tell someone their story. For goodness sakes, what are they going to do - say “Boo!” and take away your birthday?

The first consideration an individual must contemplate when facing community re-entry after incarceration is whether or not he or she genuinely wants a different path in life.
Changing your life path requires work, dedication and sacrifice. If an individual is unwilling to put forth the effort and work that is necessary to change his or her life path, then that person will probably find the exercise of trying to reenter mainstream society very frustrating.

People who do not genuinely want to embr

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” -- Martin Luther King, Jr. Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963

By Marilyn Kai Jewett

In the next few days people all over the nation will celebrate civil rights icon, Martin Luther King, Jr.  Folks will attend luncheons, lectures and interfaith services.  They’ll clean schools, paint walls and feed the homeless, but go right back to business as usual after the feel good “day of service.”   While they’ll quote the “I have a Dream

    “The racism that pervades every aspect of life in capitalist society — from jobs, income and housing to education and opportunity — is most brutally reflected by who is caught up in the U.S. prison system. More than 60 percent of U.S. prisoners are people of color. Seventy percent of those being sentenced under the three strikes law in California — which requires

A white woman with gray hair pulled neatly into a bun raises her hand. She keeps it up, unwavering and rigid, as she waits patiently for her turn to speak. Finally, the microphone is passed to the back of the room, and she leaps to her feet. With an air of desperation she blurts out, "You know white people suffer in this system, too, don't you? It's not just black and brown people destroyed by this drug w
