Parents and juvenile justice advocates want Tennessee to improve the conditions in youth detention facilities after a report claims that teens held at the Wilder Youth Development Center were physically and sexually abused. Disability Rights Tennessee and the Youth Law Center released the report on April 27. It details how the teens held at the state-run facility in Fayette County in West Tennessee were denied medical care and therapy services, and how parents were retaliated against when they tried to raise the alarm, among other allegations. The report focuses on Wilder, but the authors believe conditions there point to larger systemic problems. In today's show, we talk to people who worked on the report, as well as a parent and juvenile justice advocate about what can be done to improve conditions for youth in detention. We invited representatives from the Tennessee Department of Children's Services, but they were unavailable. To start the show, WPLN political reporter Blaise Gainey breaks down everything you need to know from the Tennessee General Assembly this session. Guests: Blaise Gainey, WPLN political reporter Sherry, a mother whose teenage son was held at Wilder Brian Blalock, attorney at Youth Law Center Javais Hammonds, a formerly incarcerated teen who now works with the Youth Justice Action Council Marcel Hernandez, program director at Youth Advocate Programs, Inc.

Welcome to Season 12. Today, we're starting a 10-part series inspired by the people Allison Langer taught memoir writing, in a men's prison. We put a call out for stories, so you will hear stories her students have written recently and stories from other incarcerated or formerly incarcerated people around the world.To help us get this right, we asked Xaire, who is a poet, singer-songwriter, actor, and teacher to co-host with us. Xaire teaches writing and poetry to kids in the foster care system. THIS MUST BE SAID: We don't mean to sensationalize crime or someone who breaks the law. Airing these stories is in no way meant to take anything away from the victims of violent crime. Instead, we want to share stories, because we believe that stories lead to understanding. And if there's something we need more of these days, it's understanding. The first story in our series was written by our own Allison Langer. It's a story about change. A change in the way Allison sees the justice system and the way she sees the people caught up in the justice system. Our hope (after hearing all the stories in the series) is that you will see in the men and women, what we have come to see: intelligent, motivated, kind human beings who made a mistake--sometimes, very big, huge, awful mistakes. Most of the people who are incarcerated are suffering from trauma, had to make very difficult choices at a young age, and got tangled up in a flawed system. Some have been misjudged and wrongfully convicted. But those men and women are NOT their crimes. They have paid their debts, matured, and are ready to move on with their lives.Maybe you will fear the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated less or not at all. Maybe you will support laws that provide equal justice and job opportunities to the formerly incarcerated. Maybe you'll give your family members a break when they disappoint you. Maybe you will have more patience with young people who have messed up. Our hope extends to those who are victims of violent crimes. These stories are for you too. We hope hearing some of these stories will bring some relief.Writing Class Radio is produced by Allison Langer, Andrea Askowitz, Xaire, and by Matt Cundill, Evan Surminski and Courtney Fox at the Sound Off Media Company. Music by Xaire and Marnino Toussaint.There's more writing class on our website, writingclassradio.com: including video classes, essays to study, and editing resources.

This week, we report on the origins of privately-run immigration detention centers and ask: “Are these places actually necessary?” The unprecedented health crisis created by the coronavirus forced the release of thousands of migrants across the country, plunging the number of people detained in immigration facilities to a historic low. And despite the dwindling detention numbers, the immigration court system never collapsed. So this begs the question: did we ever need detention facilities in the first place?

Our guests include Dulce Garcia, the Director of Border Angels, an immigration advocacy organization that among its many efforts, places large water jugs in the desert for people crossing the border. We'll get a sense of how that organization and others like it reach out to immigrants in the US, including day laborers, and help them with basic needs, especially during COVID.
