Welcome to The Prison Post. This is your podcast for conversations surrounding the need to reform prisons from the perspectives of formerly incarcerated people, community members, and leaders in the restorative justice movement. The Prison Post will feature an episode every Wednesday with people who are in the fight to restore lives and heal communities.
This week we’ll be having a conversation with Vanessa and David Sloane. Vanessa Sloane is the Director and Cofounder of Life Support Alliance. She is a recognized veteran of more than 25 years in the prison reform movement. She’s also the editor of the California Lifer Newsletter and is married to David Sloane, a paroled lifer. David served over 23 years of a life sentence in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He brings a unique perspective to the challenges that people face after serving life sentences. While on parole himself, David was approved to return to several prisons as one of LSA’s program facilitators. Life Support Alliance’s workshops are for people with life-sentences who are working hard for their freedom.
