This morning we talk with members of a coalition called Care Not Control which is working to transform the criminal legal system to end youth incarceration in PA. The coalition recently released Care, Not Control: The Album, which showcases the talents, hopes, and dreams of young people directly impacted by the criminal legal system. I speak to Bre Stoves, youth organizer with Care, Not Control and The Village of Arts and Humanities. She is also a youth advocate with Juvenile Law Center. Bre has two songs on the album, including Untold Story, the debut single. Michaela Pommells is Care, Not Control Campaign Organizer. Michaela helped the coalition through the album process.
What does it truly mean to rest? Philadelphians can contemplate this question during a visit to an immersive, audiovisual installation by local multimedia artist Gralin Hughes, Jr. (Television Sky.) I speak to Hughes about Supine Horizons, an immersive site for rest, resistance and renewal, featuring synthesized sound and projected visuals by Gralin. Supine Horizons is organized by Philadelphia Contemporary and is open at the Kinesics Dance Dynamics Theatre through Dec. 20. https://philadelphiacontemporary.org/
First, You've probably heard about food insecurity but what about clothing insecurity - lack of access to affordable, adequate, appropriate clothing. “Lack of clothing” accounts for three of the top ten reasons kids miss school. I speak to Michal Smith, Executive Director at Cradles to Crayons Philadelphia which is working to address the urgent need for new and gently used clothing for kids through donation of items, money and volunteers.
