Welcome to The Prison Post. This is our monthly Policy Edition hosted by CROP’s Director of Business Development, Ken Oliver. As a former Policy Director himself, Ken invites guests to discuss the landscape of policy and criminal justice. These thoughtful conversations provide insight into the direction in which our state is moving and what we can do to help end mass incarceration. These conversations will happen the first Wednesday of every month. Ken's first guest is Shay Franco Clausen. Shay has an amazing story from humble beginnings as a homeless youth who experienced unspeakable trauma. As a formerly incarcerated person she now uses her platform as an elected Santa Clara official to advocate for the disenfranchised who occupy the largest prison system int eh world. Shay is the Campaign Manager for Prop 17, a landmark ballot measure that will grant voting rights for those of us on parole.
