This week, we'll discuss reintegration. Once deemed a "sex offender" or worse, a "sexually violent predator," how can you start over as a member of society? Most go through this process alone. But in recent years, programs.have been popping up all over the world & in several U.S. states.

We'll discuss the difficult process of reingrating without help. See this experience through the eyes of Derek Logue, Author of Once Fallen. His life after incarceration and the many difficulties he faced led to activism. He then wrote the book, detailing his struggles. Derek's detailed web site is at: OnceFallen.com. You may also purchase his book here.

We will also delve into a successful reintegration program that's near Coalinga State Hospital. Circles of Support and Accountability or COSA got its start in Canada and now has successful branches in the UK as well as in MN, among others. Our guest Frank Juarez has worked with COSA in Fresno, CA and will discuss his experiences. Please visit COSA Fresno at http://peace.fresno.edu/cosa/.

Join us for this informative show--find out what can happen when the community & volunteers help the newly freed men find their place in society. What a difference it can make for all involved!
