Center For Prison Reform CPR Newsletter
December 1, 2014
Hello <<First Name>>,

Prisons aren't just traumatic mentally. A new study from the Vera Institute of Justice shows a devastating impact on health. This week we highlight their recommendations.

We also tell you two surprising new tricks. One in Texas reduces prison overcrowding, and another shows how early childhood education can influence prison rates.

In our video of the week, meet inmates from California's first gay and transgender jail wing.

Want to be involved? Join our next weekly national call on December 10th from 2-2:30PM EST. Ring (605) 562-3140 and type in code 408388#.
