Hello <<First Name>>,
With Congress back in session, The Center For Prison Reform is busy meeting with legislators
and working with coalition allies to keep reform at the top of the agenda. This week, read about
some of bipartisan efforts being discussed, and take a look at some of the unintended
consequences of federal reforms on the state level.
In addition, step inside a program that encourages prisoners to design their ideal prison, and
take a look at the new laws put in place to curb abuses in New York City. Finally, watch the
Northwestern School of Journalism's take on recidivism in an episode of Medill Newsmakers, our
video of the week.
Also, don't forget to join us on September 17th for the next Center For
Prison Reform weekly call-in from 2-2:30PM EST. All are
welcome; dial (605) 562-3140 and use the participant code 408388#.
