New Web Radio Show to Focus on Interests of Families of Incarcerated

I’ll be co-hosting a monthly radio program starting next week that will feature guests who will address many of the questions and concerns people have when a loved one is in prison.

Makeba Lavan, a columnist for Lives in Focus, Family Life Behind Bars, will also be a host.

During each show we’ll cover topics like how do you deal with all the bills piling up when it’s just you earning for the whole family? how do you overcome the social stigma? The idea is to help those left behind when a family member or significant other is in prison.

The first show will be on Monday, March 16 at 6:30 pm EST.  The show will feature the Founder and President of Children of Promise, NYC, Sharon B. Content.

CPNYC is a Brooklyn based organization committed to embracing and empowering children of incarcerated parents to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal system.  The organization offers counseling, mentoring, academic tutoring, recreation and more.  Content will talk about the program and how this Bed-Stuy born organization has worked to change young lives.

People can listen live to the show on their phones or over the Internet. To listen to the show on your phone, dial (347) 326-9981. When you have a question, just press 1 on your phone. Keep in mind that the phone number is a New York number and your phone company will charge you for long distance calling.

If you are not in the area and don’t want to call long distance, you can listen to the show at:

We hope you join us for the inaugural radio program. We’d also love your suggestions for guests and topics for future programs. Please share those in the comments section below.
