a former as someone who for and on top of the law list and as a former as someone who's lived in new york and a former resident of america said a very sad it is just lived in new york the former resident of america said a very sad it's very sad it's like it just doesn't seem like a very very sad it's it just doesn't seem like a very thoughtful way to deal with a with a crisis that acts as a crisis and that very thoughtful way to 'd deal with it with a crisis that acts as a crisis and that's not the way to deal with human beings no. way to deal with human beings no. not at all let me let me run you the plan 1st let's explain to people what bill de blasio put it all let me let me run you the clam 1st let's explain to people what bill de blasio is for. so like basing our presidential
3:32 am
canon and what right 5 seconds it was $8.00 and $4.00 so like basing our presidential canon and. 5 seconds it was a it was ok as. the plan basically works homey it was ok then as. the plan basically works homeless individuals and families are eligible for the special one time assistance program if there was some vigils and families are eligible for the special one time assistance program if they can prove they have been new york city in a new york city shelter for at least 90 days and that their household and can prove they have been in new york city in a new york city shelter for at least 90 days and that their household income is no more than twice what it owes what they owe when rent and if they qualify as no more than twice what it owes what they owe when rent and if they qualify the city essentially pays for their moving costs and like one year's worth of revenue may the city essentially pays for their moving costs and like one year's worth of revenue move them to a city and a home somewhere around the country
3:33 am
a lot of them do a city and a home somewhere around the country a lot of them have been in new jersey and things like that but the problem is the city's not following up on this and did in new jersey and things like that but the problem is the city's not following up on this in any real way and a lot of people are being moved in the less than stellar locations but right a real way and a lot of people are being moved in the less than stellar locations but right if you are just sort of disappearing and falling off the map and nobody's really paying attention to her that as a native you are just sort of disappearing and falling off the map and nobody's really paying attention to who it is and that's what what i find most disturbing is that sounds very much like something that happened you know and this is what what i find the most disturbing is it sounds very much like something that happened you know 10203040 years ago it was san francisco in portland have you and 203040 years ago it was san francisco and portland have years. similar tactics started under
3:34 am
main then mayor gavin newsom similar tactics started under may then mayor gavin newsom. who some of you have seen. lots of on t.v. them. who some of you have seen. lots of on t.v. very progressive very for the people gavin newsom had this homework very progressive very for the people gavin newsom had this homeward bound program from. a and it transferred it to. the people a year and the same thing some people did find a place to believe city officials when they later and the same thing some people did find a place to believe city officials when they looked into things found that a lot of people on reachable missing just completely missing things found that a lot of people on reachable missing just completely missing. jail had already
3:35 am
had our rich already returned turned back to homelessness and the last and in the time that they left them out and 3 years after they started transplanting their homeless and 3 years after they started transplanting their homeless portland oregon found that 3 months after departures nearly half of what almost half the people in oregon found that 3 months after departures nearly half of what almost half the people. it's about. half of those who had been transported and. could. reach that promised housing and some have lost their promised housing so they didn't get the housing that they were promised they didn't get biggest things and to me if you're going to give money for someone they didn't get the housing that they were promised they didn't get biggest things and to me if you're going to give money for someone it's like a home or a bad. and or go back where it just feels very go back where you came with us like
3:36 am
homeward bound or go back where it just feels very go back where you came here homeward bound oh here why don't we get you to new jersey or somewhere else while i'm here homeward bound oh here why don't we get you to new jersey or somewhere else why don't you take $89000000.00 and build them affordable housing right that's why i think if you're going to sort of you take $89000000.00 and build them affordable housing right that's why i think if you're going to sort of runs us know housing long term or telling your nets there's a lot of options with $89000000.00 us know housing long term are telling and that's there's a lot of options with $89000000.00 this city pushes back on that argument and here is how the every department of this city pushes back on that argument here is how the every department of homeless services in new york city depend on these costs telling the post that the single most services in new york city depend on these costs telling the post that the city actually saves on shelter funding which
3:37 am
amounts to about $41000.00 anyway per family could be actually saves on shelter funding which amounts to about 41000 and you'll be perfectly compared to the average yearly rent of around $17000.00 families elsewhere across not in their city right so i mean you're taking these people paired to the average yearly rent of around 17000 to house families elsewhere across not in their city right so i mean you're taking these people and there was one lawsuit right now that a couple a family of 4 was beautiful and there was one lawsuit right now that a couple a family of 4 was put into a home in new jersey the literally didn't have running water or let into a home in new jersey the literally didn't have running water or electricity and so but now you can now you can pull yourself up by the bootstraps because where help tricity and so but now you can now you can pull yourself up by the bootstraps because we're helping you out for a year but we. you're not letting the mayors of the towns know or any kind of
3:38 am
officials when you're not reading you all for your butt when you're not letting the mayors of the towns know or any kind of officials when you're not reaching out to these people after they're there and all that how do you expect to go from home was to successful with these people after they're there and all that how do you expect to go from homeless to successful within a year it's insane i mean i don't know there's really any and even a year it's insane i mean i don't know there's really any any way for that to have to happen in any real way you know one of the things that sort of way for that to have to happen in any real way you know one of the things that's really upset exactly and simone who is a pool policy analyst at coalition for the homeless said we are really upset exactly and simone who is a pool policy analyst at coalition for the homeless said we are in this really seeing a lot of complaints about conditions now that the program has an operation long enough that initially seen a lot of complaints about conditions now that the program has an operation long enough that the soda subsidy is expiring one of the main concerns is it might not
3:39 am
be realists the soda subsidy is expiring one of the main concerns is it might not be realistic for people to be entirely yourselves sufficient after that worst year and part of the day for people to be entirely yourselves sufficient after that worst year and part of that is because there's no job part of that there's no food part of this out is because there's no job part of that there is no food part of this program it isn't here's a package and saying we would like to go back to more to our hometown we would like program it isn't here's a package and saying we would like to go back to more to our hometown we would like to move into a place for that to say ok here's $20000.00 to get you on your feet and get your feet to move into a place for that to say ok here's 20000 dollars to get you on your feet and get your family along with food and food stamps or whatever there's no actual how family along with food stamps or whatever there's no actual how it's throw money and once $1.00. they're out of their zip code out of the 21 to make money and once

a growth rate twice as fast as the male prison population however went to burn the amount of women in u.s. prisons to those abroad we see a shopping disparity for instance or when to burn the amount of women in u.s. prisons to those of broad we see a shopping disparity for instance are currently 231000 women behind bars in the u.s. that is 4 and currently 231000 women behind bars in the u.s. that is 4 times as many people as were incarcerated in all of japan in 2070 times as many people as were incarcerated in all of japan in 2070 according to prison policy initiative women have become the fastest growing segment of the car according to prison policy initiative women have become the fastest growing segment of the incarcerated population but despite recent interest in the alarming national trend few people know it's aerated population but despite recent interest in the alarming national trend few people know what's happening in their own states
4:02 am
however people are starting to notice the problem oh what's happening in their own states however people are starting to notice the problem even some major mainstream media publications take for instance the washington post's magazines even some major mainstream media publications take for instance the washington post's magazine's latest issue which contains essays an art by formally or currently incarcerated america its latest. which contains an arc by formally or currently incarcerated americans in can we build a better women's prison by journalist carey. in can we build a better women's prison by journalist carey who are 2 years in county and state correctional facilities on drug charges is one who are self serve 2 years in county and state correctional facilities on drug charges is one that has raised some eyebrows in it she states the american prison system was built with men in mind that has raised some eyebrows in it she states the american prison system was built with men in mind the uniforms are made to fit male body is about 70 percent of the

4:04 am
washington post piece it's got a lot of start by asking you this when you look at the washington post piece it's got a lot of criticism and one of the things that kind of jumped to me is the writer writes about a visit to one of the criticisms and one of the things that kind of jumped to me is the writer writes about a visit to one of these prisons that's been designed for women specifically for women in trouble for and she states that these prisons. it's been designed for women specifically for women in california and she states that there you see you know women are landscaping a paltry line walkway under the gaze of a there you see you know women are landscaping a paltry line walkway under the gaze of a player had shirted horticulture teacher to my right door dorms with a volleyball net player had shirted horticultural teacher to my right door dorms with a volleyball net and scattered pieces of exercise his equipment for the women of earn their way to the prime housing to sign for and scattered pieces of exercise as equipment for the women of earn their way to the prime housing assignments and so running it all
4:05 am
a lime green palo verde trees the pink painted determines and surrounding it all a lime green palo verde trees the pink painted utility covers and the 800 women who live there. is a brick wall the facility covers in the $800.00 women who live there is a brick wall the 5 year old $240000000.00 facility is still a jail but no razor wires are in sight 5 year old $240.00 mill $1000000.00 facility is still a jail but no razor wires are in sight even theory we can build better prisons but the question after he was in theory we can build better prisons but the question after it was should we should we be wasting the time in building better prisons when really it's the prison should we should we be wasting the time in building better prisons when really it's the prison system that's the problem right and i think that our way. and this system that's the problem right and i think that our way to. initially approached and say that we can't can't improve prisons and if we
4:06 am
did then we would continue to approach and say that we can't can't improve prisons and if we did then we would continue to expand upon and here an unjust system so a better prison is to expand upon and apparently unjust system so a better prison and is ironically a worse prison. i think. is ironically a worse prison. i think ari was obviously a little horrified reading the article the headline itself was obviously a little horrified reading the article the headline itself i think. we're talking about a suitable prison for people i think. we're talking about a suitable prison for people or for women there is none. i think that when you you listed off a lot of women there is none. i think that when you you listed off a lot of. wonderful men it is very valuable in court of.
4:07 am
wonderful men it is very volleyball court. exercise maybe counseling services that my question. exercise may be counseling services that my question is why can't those exist outside of the walls of a prison. why can't those exist outside of the walls of a person. should good observation but there's just no there is that understanding that. there's just no there is that understanding that we're in this mindset that the only way to deal with anybody we're in this mindset that the only way to deal with anybody is prison or a fine or. is prison or a fine or. all of this enough so you end up with well if we just make it think
4:08 am
a pub volleyball not. all of this enough so you end up with well if we just make it think a pub volleyball map. which is strange to me. i think which is strange to me. i think. i mean i see the logic i don't but i do. i mean i see the logic i don't but i do. in the idea of a modernized the state of the art system but we do know when you look at history the idea of a modernized the state of the art system but we do know when you look at history that we perpetually. sort of opted for that we perpetually. sort of opted for a modernization of prisons and they quickly deteriorate because in essence they are the dehumanization of prisons and they quickly deteriorate because in essence they are the dehumanization of people so it's hard to create. conditions nation of
4:09 am
people so it's hard to create. conditions. in a place that is supposed to quite literally to humanize people. in a place that is supposed to quite literally to humanize people by taking away rights like freedom speech and movement. by taking away rights like freedom speech and movement. but i i completely understand why this conversation brings being brought up now especially i completely understand why this conversation being brought up now especially because we also see as you mentioned a boom in women in prisons. because we also see as you mentioned a boom in women in prisons. so within the last 30 or something years it went from about 20000 so within the last 30 or something years it went from about 20000. and women incarcerated to about over 200000 or 200000 people which is women
4:10 am
incarcerated to about over 200000 or 200000 people which is. heinous so then the question becomes how do we comedy this population versus. heinous so then the question becomes how do we comment at this population versus what happened what's at the root of their incarceration which most women who are since what happened what's at the root of their incarceration which most women who are in prison or jail are in there are survivors. are in prison or jail are in there are survivors 1st and foremost they're survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence i think many of us have seen the most they're survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence i think many of us have seen that they are often criminalized for self-defense purposes or practices that they are often criminalized for self-defense purposes or practices. there are
4:11 am
a host of reasons why most women are in prisons and it. there are a host of reasons why most women are in prisons and it doesn't have to do with their rehabilitative needs in the 1st place right or at least in the sense doesn't have to do with their rehabilitated needs in the 1st place right or at least in the sense that their character needs to be rehabilitated we really are social issues that their character needs to be rehabilitated we really are social issues or social structures need to be completely transformed they do we let me ask you this because i notice that our social structures need to be completely transformed they do we let me ask you this because i noticed that one of the things that we saw when we looked at the number from 1978 over the course of my personal like my one of the things that we saw when we looked at the number from 978 over the course of my personal like my lifetime watching this number go up one of the things i noticed is that the federal prison life so i'm watching this number go up one of the things i noticed is that the federal. prison didn't actually get much larger many did
4:12 am
someone but the largest growth was in didn't actually get much larger many did someone but the largest growth was in state prisons and local jails or county jails does that have a lot to do with castigate prisons and local jails or county jails does that have a lot to do with cash bail and how does that system i mean is that one of them is that a major issue especially for and how does that system i mean is that one of them is that a major issue especially for women i feel like as often single mothers or being a lot of the major bread women i feel like as often single mothers or being a lot of the major breadwinners shifted over 'd major like household person is that when it's shifted over major like household person is that part of it or things like cash bail is that this is just more policing for profit or maybe part of it are things like cash bail is that this is just more policing for profit or am i being paranoid you know i don't think you're being paranoid. i think it's easy to
4:13 am
see that paranoid you know i don't think you're being paranoid. i think it's easy to see it that way because it seems. so practice i think way because it seems. so practice i think i can't speak on it fully but i would say that it has a lot to do with the kinds of i can't speak on it fully but i would say that it has a lot to do with the kinds of quote unquote crimes that are being committed which really it is who is being taught and what crimes that are being committed which really it is who is being targeted and how is that target change. we see that a lot of the women who are incarcerated and how is that target changing. we see that a lot of the women who are incarcerated are actually in jails and not prisons a lot of them are simply awaiting trial ritter actually in jails and not prisons a lot of them are simply awaiting. are dealing with very small offenses like best.
4:14 am
usually for are dealing with very small offenses like best. usually 1st survival purposes so they're really not cases in which they would be sent to federal prison or viable purposes so they're really not cases in which they would be sent to federal prisons or. really aggressive sentences. prisons or. really aggressive sentences. and for that reason i think you look at the prison policy i think. and for that reason i think you look at the prison policy i think. study and you see that they're disproportionately there are more women in jails. study and you see that there is just proportionately there are more women in jails so one of the things i wonder. is that you do a lot of work. you do a lot of work here in d.c. and in terms of trying to change the incarceration system what are some of the
4:15 am
things the terms of trying to change the incarceration system here like what are some of the things that are happening here on a local level and do you see that you're working on. happening here on a local level and do you see that you're working on. that because that is my context. at least in the work that i do i think d.c. is a prime example because that is my context. at least in the work that i do i think d.c. is a prime example of. just the terror that is our full of be . just the terror that is our current incarceration system dc's incarceration rate surpasses the national average current incarceration system d.c.'s incarceration rate surpasses the national average right behind mississippi in terms of incarceration rates. and it's right behind mississippi in terms of incarceration rates. and you've seen a lot more coverage and conversation about the things you've seen
4:16 am
a lot more coverage and conversation about the criminalization of black girls for being black girls honestly a lot of criminalization of black girls for being black girls honestly a lot of black women particularly young black girls are arrested in criminal black women particularly young black girls are arrested and criminalized for skipping class. for or skipping class. for issues that they might have at home. if they're victims of sex trafficking oftentimes therapy that they might have at home. if they're victims of sex trafficking oftentimes they are persecuted are prosecuted. as eliciting sort of prostitute persecuted or prosecuted. as eliciting sort of prostitution so you see that we also see that uptick in that happen so you see
4:17 am
that we also see that uptick in that happening in d.c. so again the conversation can easily turn into how do we accommodate prisons and expanding in d.c. so again the conversation can easily turn into how do we accommodate prisons and expand upon jails and prisons for this increasing population where the question should be why are the nippon jails and prisons for this increasing population where the question should be why are they being incarcerated and you quickly find out. they're rooted in being incarcerated and you quickly find out. they're rooted in stomach issues you know i think a lot of readers cover this war we talked about even with the stomach issues you know i think a lot of readers cover this war we talked about even when the show was this kind of war on the poor that were involved. if you're poor on the show which this kind of war on the poor that we're involved in. you're poor sorry you're 2nd class 3rd
4:18 am
class 4th in this country and we'd rather throw you in jail sure you're 2nd class 3rd class 4th in this country and we'd rather throw you in jail should be to different cities around the country and kind of push the problem away rather than actually trying to help people to different cities around the country and kind of push the problem away rather than actually trying to help people that's the reason part about it i think that's also why d.c. is a great example. that's the reason part about it i think that's also why d.c. is a great example. there is a recent move to decriminalize sex work. right and oftentimes people and there is a recent move to decriminalize sex work. right and oftentimes people in sex work are not only gender minorities trans women. racial minorities black sex work are not only gender minorities trans women. racial minorities black women. but again there for survival purposes more often than not women. but there again they're for survival purposes more often than not. and they're being criminalized and they're
4:19 am
being. assaulted both and they're being criminalized and they're being. assaulted both in jail by police officers and on the streets so you have in jail by police officers and on the streets so yes it is a war on the poor on racial minorities on vulnerable populations as it is a war on the poor on racial minorities on vulnerable populations. also more than half of people in prisons have mental health conditions. also more than half of people in prisons have mental health conditions so there is a lot of work that we have to sit there and i think about that 1st part is under so there is a lot of work that we have to sit there and i think about that 1st part is understanding where the disparities are when it's you know especially when men women of color and and i think they're standing where the disparities are when it's you know especially when men women of color. and i think feminism has oh as i wrote here it
4:20 am
