Please join us on Monday, December 13th at 6:30 pm for Prison Pipeline on KBOO Community Radio as we talk with Zach Whalen of Project Avary. 
Project Avary was founded in 1999 by Danny Rifkin, co-manager of the Grateful Dead and San Quentin Chaplain, Earl Smith. They initially met on a tour of the prison, but a conversation and longer-term collaboration developed when members of the Grateful Dead began regular visits to work with and record the San Quentin Choir. They envisioned, funded and bootstrapped with their friends and community, Project Avary Summer Camp to give children of incarcerated parents a carefree and immersive childhood experience.

Project Avary is a model for developing peer mentorship and support for children of incarcerated adults.  It was one of the first nonprofit organizations in the nation dedicated to improving life outcomes among children with parents in prison. Since their founding, over 1,000 children in California have participated in a long-term continuum of support that includes enrichment, outdoor education and psycho-social support for children, leadership and life skills training for teens, and valuable support for caregivers.

Prison Pipeline is a radio program dedicated to educating the public about the Oregon criminal justice system. Our goal is to present a unique understanding of the criminal justice system, address the root causes of crime, and challenge the status quo. We seek to promote awareness and activism in order to foster a safe, healthy, and just society. Tune in every Monday at 6:30 P.M. to hear our hosts Karen James, Adam Carpinelli, Amy Johnson, Emma Lugo, Doug McVay, and Isabelle Sinclar explore the Oregon justice system with a variety of guests.
