Jobs Not Jails: Interview with Steve O’Neill

JOBS NOT JAILS: An interview with Steve O’Neill

An interview with Steve O’Neil of EPOCA (Ex-Prisoner and Prisoners Organizing for Community Advancement) who is leading the charge on the Jobs Not Jails campaign.

Jobs Not Jails is an umbrella campaign, bringing together a diverse array of people who care about the future of our economy, and about the damage that mass incarceration is doing to our communities. It is not a legislative strategy. It pulls together dozens of organizations who are leading separate legislative strategies for everything from a higher minimum wage to the creation of an innocence commission uniting us all with the realization that each of our goals will be a lot easier if there are 10,000 people on Boston Common demanding Jobs Not Jails!
