LARRP was co-sponsor of JLUSA's Emerging Leaders Training at USC Gould School of Law. The training session focused on empowering those impacted most by the criminal justice system to acquire leadership skills.

Shoutout to Suzanne Sanderson who shared with us! "This site seems to have a complete database of listings for all emergency, legal and law enforcement government offices in the country – with working phone numbers directions (at least for the ones I’ve tried!). I wanted to share the site because it has saved me a few headaches and I’m sure it would be useful to others as well."

The Marshall Project

Photographer Brian L. Frank captures the lives of men on the fire lines and at home in prison conservation camps.

In response, the state's fire agency, CALFIRE, has mobilized more than 11,000 firefighters.

Of those, 1,500 were inmates from minimum security conservation camps run by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, where they are trained to work on fire suppression and other emergencies like floods and earthquakes.

Read the Final installment of “Love, Loyalty and Liberation: Prerequisites for Restoring Race Relations in America”

My final perquisite is that of LIBERATION. One of the greatest liberators and liberation movements in history was that of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement during the 1960s. We should take stock of those times and learn from them, because the struggle for liberation is as real today as it was then. I would love to say that the efforts of Dr. King and others that served with him paved the way for complete liberation for people of color, but then I wouldn’t be writing this blog.
