  • Title: Message from Chapter President
    Descriptive info: Conf.. Details.. Message from the President - September 19, 2012.. This is the 25th year for the Oklahoma Chapter to network with other organizations and groups to ensure the African American representation and participation as policy makers in the administration of justice nationally, regionally, and locally.. Our chapter organized a student chapter at Langston University to encourages Criminal Justice students to continue a career path that assists the disenfranchised and marginalized persons facing challenges for a better quality of life.. We established the Robert Buckner Scholarship Fund to assist financially any criminal justice student on any campus in Oklahoma with their academic pursuit.. Our organization applauds the contributions of community leaders, legislative caucuses, advocates and faith entities who work diligently to expand awareness and engage action to break unjust barriers.. We recognize exemplary community service annually.. As a partner with the Oklahoma Corrections Association, we planned a combined conference for 2012.. The theme, Facing New Challenges, Renewing Our Commitment, is a reminder of why our chapter exists.. NABCJ started with Robert Buckner, Ted Logan, Joyce Jackson, JD Daniels, Clint Johnson, Rita Cooksey, and a host of others to meet the challenge in the establishment of a professional organization for the employees in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.. They had a vision to build alliances in the criminal justice arena throughout the state, to educate employees in leadership by providing expert training, to connect members to political community initiatives, and to inform with public awareness about the processes in the justice system.. It has been, and continues to be, an honorable time of engagement and involvement.. We have the beginnings for a new platform to serve as a vehicle to influence legislation and public policy formulations in the areas of criminal justice for an impartial administration of justice.. Our objectives and interests for the next twenty five years must herald an inclusive voice for constructive change.. In the years ahead, we must forge a policy which embraces the very reasons for our existence.. We must participate actively in the issues confronting minorities on any front in a pro-active approach to impact the resurgence of racism, biases, and prejudices.. We must support our members as they ascribe to be better and to do better to gain a seat at the table.. We must not only connect the dots, but we must also draw the line.. Every monthly meeting is video conference for accessible participation.. Ask yourself: Is this the new challenge? Is this the way to renew our commitment? Your response is your membership in this prestigious, national organization.. Our chapter started a mentoring  ...   sentences of two sisters to parole after serving sixteen years, contingent upon one sister donating a kidney to the other.. In 1994, Jamie and Gladys Scott were convicted of ambushing two men, hitting each in the head with a shotgun, and stealing $11.. 00 from their wallets.. Mississippi Corrections Commissioner Christopher B.. Epps agreed with the decision to suspend the sentences, stating Jamie Scott's three-times-a-week dialysis costs the state about $190,000 a year.. The rising costs of medical care impacts private citizens as well as those in the care of governmental systems.. Concerns such as accessibility and affordability, led to the passage of a health care reform bill, although constitutionally challenged.. States’ constitutional rights include health care for offenders; however, to what degree, for how much, and for how long became the question for Mississippi, and should be the question for us all.. Research published by the Urban Institute’s Justice Policy Center in 2008 noted that “78% of offenders returning home were uninsured”.. Upon release, the Scott Sisters medical concerns will be serviced under the auspices of the Health Disparities and Affordable Care Act and Medicaid, and consequently, raise salient issues.. By exercising his executive power, the governor provided an opportunity for equal access to health care for a racial minority to participate in health care reform, which includes coordinated care to manage chronic illnesses, insurance exclusions, and preventive services.. It appears that Governor Barbour has a respect for human life as an inalienable right.. The uniqueness of this issue is the practice to uphold the rights of others and serve the common good.. Rights of incarcerated persons can, and perhaps should, be upheld if the cost to incarcerate is a greater burden to citizens and the mission to protect the public is not compromised.. In response to democratic influence (according to a few perspectives) the Mississippi Governor action polarized the issues surrounding the arrest, trial, and conviction of the Scott Sisters as democracy affords us the opportunity to revisit decisions.. An innate sense of justice performed by a state’s executive power may lead a pursuit for democratic, restorative justice of civil rights to the fullest extent.. Regardless of the motive, issues provide a mechanism for policy change, and when addressed, the outcome may result in the formulation of new public policy impacting both state and federal government.. Should not we in Oklahoma revisit our incarceration rank of # 1 in the nation for women at the average age of 35 as well as our incarceration rate in the state of 30% for African American males from an African American population of 8%?..

    Descriptive info: Legislative News.. Posted August 24, 2011.. Message from Kate Richey, Policy Analyst, Oklahoma Policy Institute:.. We have released the second post in a three-part series by Oklahoma Policy Institute examining the persistence of racial disparities in unemployment, Oklahoma’s Unemployment Gap (Part Two): Why the labor market isn’t colorblind.. Part Two explores underlying and immediate causes for the state’s black-white unemployment gap and suggests reasons for its persistence.. An excerpt:.. Despite a litany of post-election commentary in 2008 and high-profile best-selling books heralding the end of racism in America, scholarly research is unequivocal on the question of hiring discrimination against black applicants: it’s alive and well.. Sociologist Devah Pager’s groundbreaking peer-reviewed research has demonstrated that black applicants without a criminal record are less likely to get call-backs from prospective employers than white applicants with a criminal record and just released from prison..

Story reported by KOCO.. com 3/2/2010 , 5:57 p.. ((CST)) copied and brought to OKCURE by LeAnne Jones.. HOUSE BILL 2998.. ONLY APPLIES TO NON-VIOLENT OFFENDERS WITH FAMILIES.. OKLAHOMA CITY--- Legislation creates a pilot program that seeks to establish re-entry and diversion programs to allow non-violent offender mothers to receive community-based services in lieu of incarceration unanimously passed the House Monday.. House Bill 2998, by Rep Kris Steele, would encourage re-entry and diversion programs as opposed to jail time for non-violent female offenders in allowing them to receive rehabilitative services while maintaining contact with their family.. Oklahoma incarcerates more women then any other state in the nation.. It's incarceration rate for women is 131 per 100,000 residents, almost twice that national average of 69 per 100,000.. Most women prison inmates, 68 percent are in prison for non-violent offenses.. This bill will give women convicted of non-violent crimes to access rehabilitative services that have proven effective, said Steele.. As policy-makers, we can be both though and smart on crime.. The average prison stay for a non-violent woman is less than a year, but the impact on their children is lifelong and devastating.. In-home rehabilitative services will keep these families together and allow Oklahoma women to receive the help they desperately need.. The bill passed the House with a vote of 92-0 and will next be considered by the Senate..
