Notes From Episode 5

Inside Private Prisons

Virtually all of the questions that I asked were inspired by what I found in Lauren-Brooke Eisen’s book, so there will not be any additional citations this week. But, if you want to learn more about Lauren-Brooke’s work, you can check out much of the rest of her work at the Brennan Center’s website.

The Reverse Mass Incarceration Act

I am particularly fond of her pamphlet describing the “Reverse Mass Incarceration Act” which has been turned into legislation which  is currently pending in the United States Senate.

Thanks very much to Lauren for letting me interview her for the Decarceration Nation podcast!
