MOCURE Conference – Families And Inmates Fighting For Their Human Rights

America has more people per capita incarcerated, by a large margin, than any other nation on the planet. The land of the free is anything but, and the number of falsely convicted is only now starting to become apparent. Just as scandalous as the number incarcerated is Why they are incarcerated…..Profit is the motive. Wall Street loves the Prison Industrial Complex that preys on the lives and income of mainly the poor, legally enslaving inmates and financially and emotionally enslaving their families as well. Many families must mortgage their present and future to help their loved ones survive behind bars and gain their release.

There is a growing call from academia and activism on the part of prisoners and family to demand changes because the Corrections Industry does little to nothing to rehabilitate and instead is making the problem worse. This year’s Conference of Missouri Citizens United for the Reform of Errants, MOCURE will help you understand how the Justice System has been subverted from protecting our communities from crime to making us more unsafe and our communities less viable.

The Keynote speaker will be Frank Chapman, a well known activist against police killings of civilians, police brutality and more in Chicago, Illinois. There will be workshops on Mass Incarceration, abuse and mistreatment of the incarcerated, Police brutality and unjustified use of force, incompetent legal counsel from both private and public defenders, a plea system that entraps the innocent and more.

Host Keith Brown El will talk with Frank Chapman, a community organizer and activist from Chicago, Hedy Harden, Chair of MOCURE. Then in the second half Keith returns with Salam Jones to talk to Jesse Scott, a formerly incarcerated citizen about what it is like behind bars as well as Shirley Minor about the struggle to advocate for their loved ones.

Tune into this broadcast of Jaws of Justice Radio to find out how and why you should attend this free conference, Saturday September 29th, 10am-4pm at the Robert J Mohart Multi-Purpose Center, 3200 Wayne, KCMO. Please call 816-772-4328 to make your reservation for lunch.

On this week’s edition of Arts Magazine, guests from the 6th Annual Universal Film Festival check in with an update on this year’s event, and Damron Russel Armstrong, the Exectutive Artistic Director of the Black Repertory Theatre of Kansas City will join us to talk about his current show “Ain’t Misbehavin'” and the 2018-19 upcoming season. Join us for your weekly dose of lively local cultural chat!

This month on Trans Talk, we will feature an interview with LGBT scholar and activist Brynn Tannehill. In addition to being a retired Lt. Commander in the US Navy and a researcher at a Washington think-tank, Brynn is a frequent author for many journals and news organizations, including the Huffington Post, the AdvocateUSA TodaySalonSlate, and The New Civil Rights Movement.

Recently Brynn has been analyzing the policies and politics of the Trump Administration, the Republican and Democratic Parties, and the political and social zeitgeist we inhabit in this very strange and somewhat terrifying landscape, and she will be joining us on Trans Talk to give her analysis and perspective on where we may be headed, and how bad things could be not just for my transgender siblings out there, but the LGBT community, women, and pretty much the whole doggone planet.

We will have a new take on the transgender news of the month, and finish up the show with the community calendar update. I do hope you will be able to join us this Saturday, September 22nd at 1:00 pm on 90.1 KKFI, Kansas City Community Radio! You can also stream the program live on kkfi.org, or via various apps on your phone.
