The Prison Post #3 Jason Bryant & Ken Oliver, CROP Organization

Published on: 26th August, 2020

This week’s episode of The Prison Post features two of the CROP Organization’s Directors. My co-host Jason Bryant is CROP’s Director of Restorative Programs and our colleague Ken Oliver is the Director of Business Development. Both of these men were sentenced to life terms in prison over 20 years ago and now they are leading the way in CROP’s mission to restore lives and heal communities. During this conversation with Jason and Ken they will be sharing some of CROP’s vision and mission with housing and professional training programs for returning citizens. Guided by what they call “The Four Pillars of Successful Re-entry” CROP’s Directors are confident that they have identified the support and resources that returning citizens need to not only survive in the community, but to thrive as contributing citizens. #ThePrisonPost #ThePrisonPostPodcast #CROPOrganization #CROP #CreatingRestorativeOpportunitiesandPrograms #WorkingTogetherToRestoreLives #PrisonReform #RestorativeJustice #WorkforceDevelopment #Reentry
