Listen now: Prison nursery report

Monday’s show started at its new time, 9 p.m., and it proved to be a better hour.  We had more listeners and even had a caller comment.  During the show, Makeba and I spoke with Chandra Villanueva, the author of the Women’s Prison Association (WPA) new report on prison nursery programs.  While Villanueva spoke fairly in-depth about the report’s findings, if you want to check it out for yourself, click the New Report: Mothers, Infants and Imprisonment on the WPA website.

We were also joined by Tina Reynolds, founder of Women on the Rise Telling HerStory (WORTH), who spoke about her thoughts on the report and her personal experience with having a child while incarcerated.

Listen live below and as always, please leave your comments and suggestions below.
