What is the best way to integrate prisoners back into society?

On the next Your Call, we'll rebroadcast a conversation we had recently about re-entry after prison. A recent Supreme Court ruling ordered California to drastically reduce its prison population. It remains to be seen how this ruling will be implemented. Just last year California's recidivism rate was almost 70 percent. What explains that high number? And what does it take to reintegrate people behind bars back into the community in a healthy way? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.

Guests:
Linda Evans, organizer with All of Us Or None coalition and Legal Services for Prisoners with Children

Susan Burton, founder and executive director of A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project

Ramiro Mejia, resident employee at San Francisco's Delancey Street Foundation
