Prison Reform


A recent poll of Massachusetts residents say they’d prefer rehabilitation over punishment when it comes to prison sentences. To talk about this and the ever growing prison population due to the war on drugs and how it unfairly targets minorities, we’ll talk to best-selling author Scott Christianson who has written about this important topic. Scott Christianson is an award-winning author, journalist, filmmaker and activist who worked in high-level criminal justice positions under four NY governors. A longtime prison reformer, he has published more than a dozen books and hundreds of articles in The NY Times, the Washington Post and other publications. He is an UConn graduate and now lives in Massachusetts.
