Hello <<First Name>>,
This week, take a look at the letter The Center For Prison Reform has been distributing to Congressional staff, detailing our goals and outlining our position on meaningful, bipartisan reforms. Travel across the pond and learn about the disturbing new trend plaguing prisons in Britain and Wales, where inmate suicides have climbed to an alarming rate.
See how tattooed prisoners are far more likely to end up back behind bars sooner than their un-inked counterparts, explore a new report detailing the dramatic increase of incarceration rates in the United States over the past four decades, and discover new insights into the underlying factors at hand. In addition, watch reforms at work in a prison in India, where a program is helping to elevate inmates to their fullest potential.
