The Fully Free campaign of Heartland Alliance aims to end “permanent punishment” for people seeking to lead law-abiding lives after release from prison. Campaign manager Marlon Chamberlain (whose personal story was featured in Episode 7) shares his personal experience and describes examples of laws creating barriers for employment, housing, education, and professional licensing, which he describes as “prison after prison.”
Co-host Lynard Joiner shares his own experience with permanent punishment and expresses bewilderment as to why society continues to punish people even after serving their sentences in full and having supposedly “paid their debt to society.”
Host David Risley adds his perspective as a former career federal prosecutor.
