Stories from our prison system on KUNM Sunday
By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Dec 16 2011 4:26 PM ]
The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. About 2.3 million citizens are in prison or jail, according to the Bureau of Justice.
On Sunday, 89.9 KUNM will broadcast a special where family members and inmates from around the country—and New Mexico—call in to speak to their loved ones. The pre-taped program is part of the Thousand Kites project, which collects stories about the prison system, and connects families and inmates.
I wrote about Thousand Kites back in September, when founder Nick Szuberla visited the South Valley and worked with the Media Literacy Project and La Plazita Institute to start an Albuquerque initiative.
“Research has repeatedly shown that inmates who maintain strong connections with their families are less likely to become trapped in the revolving door of the criminal justice system,” says Media Literacy Project Executive Director Andrea Quijada in a news release.
The radio show “Calls From Home” will air on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 7 p.m.
Narratives are still being collected through New Mexico Kites. People can also call in their stories and shoutouts toll free, 24/7.
