This week we shared audio recorded by a CFRC volunteer that didn’t make it into the Prisoner’s Justice Day broadcast. Thanks to Facundo for interviewing people on the street in Kingston on a variety of ‘hotbutton’ issues in the prison system today.
Calls From Home is a monthly CFRC Prison Radio segment that connects friends and family with their loved ones behind Kingston’s prison walls through the power of community radio.
