Fired Up! member, Alisha Coleman was featured on the Making Contact National Radio Project show “Prison Crisis: Local Solution?” This show, originally aired on June 26, 2012, was produced by George Lavender and discusses the issue of realignment in California and specifically, the San Francisco County Jail and San Mateo County Jail.
Realignment is a policy aimed at reducing the numbers of people sent into state custody and instead redirects them to county jails to serve their sentences. Alisha calls in from county jail and shares her first hand experience with realignment and its impact on local jails and the livelihood of those inside.
