Center For Prison Reform CPR Newsletter
November 20, 2014
Hello <<First Name>>,

With the midterm elections behind him and a heavily partisan legislature unable to put reforms on his desk, find out why President Obama could be the only man in the United States with the ability to fix mass incarceration. On the West Coast, learn about California's fight to keep low risk prisoners behind bars - and part of their inmate workforce.

The Marshall Project went live in New York City this past weekend, providing another outlet for criminal justice news, ideas, and other ambitious projects. Also, read about how the Koch brothers and George Soros are in agreement on the need for reforms, as well as others who have blurred their political lines in favor of change.

In our video of the week, enjoy a recap of some of the most newsworthy prison reform stories in recent memory, as RT's Breaking the Set dedicates an entire show to the key issues in the system.

Want to be involved? Join our next weekly national call on November 26th from 2-2:30PM EST. Ring (605) 562-3140 and type in code 408388#.
