Central Coast Voices

Thursdays, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

Central Coast Voices addresses the many ramifications of change and how today's choices will affect tomorrow's community. This program is an extension and production of "Action for Healthy Communities" an organization committed to identifying and carrying out projects that will improve the quality of life in San Luis Obispo County. The show's topics and guests focus on raising public awareness through credible and valid information about local and regional concerns such as health care access, neighborhood design, the state of our education infrastructure, the economic impacts, and much more. Your hosts Kris Kington-Barker and Fred Munroe invite you to join the conversation. To participate, call 805-781-3875 during the program.

This week Fred Munroe will be talking with Sister Theresa Harpin, Director of Restorative Partners. This is a program working to change our criminal justice system in how we work with inmates of prisons and juvenile hall. Their approach includes working with everyone affected by crime including the families, the victims, and the inmates with a goal of restoring them back to a healthy and functioning life when they return to our communities.
