Prisoner and Criminal Justice Reform – Birth of Women – Breaking the Habit
Each Wednesday 7 p.m. EST the AM360 three-hour social justice lineup begins first with a discussion on prison recidivism and improving the criminal justice system; then the role of women in society; and finally drug abuse prevention, intervention and cure. Committing a crime is an injury to self and society, and can be an unrighteous act against one’s faith. How do we begin effectively offering healing to victims while holding accountable and helping to heal the offender? The U.S. has more people incarcerated than any other country in the world. Why? Is our penal system effective? Why or why not? Is prison for punishment or rehabilitation or both? Is our criminal justice system, start to finish, fair? How does society determine when a violator has recognized the wrong, and is ready for forgiveness? Tune in with Imam Hananiah Shabazz every week to be part of the Solution. In the second hour, Dr. Ameena Ali looks through the lens of the female perspective on issues concerning women and their rights, roles and expectations. And in the final hour, Imam Hananiah returns to lay out the case for faith-based recovery from drug abuse.
