A lot of progress... and so much more to come

There are a lot of discussions on mass inarceration and states are starting to talk about changes to sentencing or prison reform.

The ACLU announced that they will be taking on mass incarceration - citing even more statistics to build a strong case. We found the numbers speak for themselves. Here is a link to their new weekly blog, with resources and weekly highlights.

What makes an impact is a real life, where somebody with so much potential was locked up - Voices from Prison. We did have a set back with this part of our blog, and are hopeful that access  to the Monroe state prison will open up again soon.
