Welcome to The Prison Post. This is your podcast for conversations surrounding the need to reform prisons from the perspective of formerly incarcerated people, community members, and leaders of 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. In this episode we’ll be talking with Miguel Garcia, the Policy Coordinator at the Anti Recidivism Coalition. Miguel is heavily involved in his community as a youth justice advocate, a passion that began after his incarceration in the juvenile system. He received his Bachelor’s degree in political science and international relations from the University of California, Riverside and serves as a public policy fellow with Human Rights Watch. The Prison Post is a production of the CROP Organization. We’ll be sharing more stories from the world of prison reform and restorative justice, so please join us. You can listen to The Prison Post on all major podcasting platforms.
