Connie Valentine, co-founder of California Protective Parents Association (CPPA), an abuse survivor herself, has spent the last twenty years advocating for children who are being harmed in Family Court. Per CPPA stats: 58,000 American children are sentenced to live with their identified abuser each year in a system that protects the perpetrator while demonizing the “protective” parent who is trying to save their child from further abuse.


Connie discusses this and the factors contributing to this gross injustice, the steps CPPA is taking to fight back, and an easy action anyone can do to help these children, and the parents trying to protect them.










Julie Jo Johnson is a Corrections Officer in a co-ed Fairbanks, Alaska prison. Hear what she has to say about her inmates, the conditions that got them there, and the changes she is implementing inside to help them succeed outside. This is a REAL conversation with a union professional who fully understands: “Incarceration, at least in this setting, for sure, and I believe across the nation, does not work. It just doesn’t work.”









What happens when a 16-year-old honor student who’s enrolled in the gifted program, gets arrested for carjacking in Washington, D.C., 1996? Reginald Dwayne Betts, poet, memoirist, Yale Ph.D. Candidate and young lawyer newly admitted to the Connecticut State Bar Association (with the nudge of a Change.org petition), candidly shares some of his struggles as a young man who was tried as a violent adult and incarcerated for eight and a half years.
