Looking Inside America's Prisons
 
Pause for a view of society’s underside, something we don’t do very often. Yet there certainly are relational issues in America’s prisons. The Marshall Project calls for greater press access to prisons. How else to reform them?

“Reform is the new black in American corrections,” says a Marshall Project post. “If you go by the extraordinarily bipartisan chorus of policy makers, the profusion of ‘justice summit’ conferences, and the surge of attention from news media and organized philanthropy.

“America seems to be awakening to issues like the torment of solitary confinement, draconian sentencing, guard brutality, and the paucity of programs that would equip inmates to reenter society.”

The Marshall Project is “a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization covering America’s criminal justice system…Our mission is to raise public awareness around issues of criminal justice and the possibility of reform."
