An unlikely alliance of progressive and conservative groups has formed to pursue an aggressive effort to reform America’s criminal justice system.

New Legislation Would Place Prisoners on Path to Success

BY Jason Pye and Lauren Krisai

All across the country, at all levels of government, Americans are changing the way they think about the criminal justice system. Just this month, President Trump launched his first official campaign ad during the Super Bowl, and chose to focus his message on criminal justice reform. That he chose to run his first major ad, which reached over 100 million viewers, on criminal justice reform shows just how popular this issue has become.

Steering the Criminal Justice System Toward Rehabilitation Using First Step Act

BY Luke Hogg

Written following his return from 10 years in Siberian exile, Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” follows the story of Rodion Raskolnikov as he grapples with mental anguish after killing a pawnbroker. Dostoevksy struggles with many ethical dilemmas that plague criminal justice, including deep questions about the efficacy of imprisonment and the process of redemption. Centering around the dichotomy between formal and informal punishment, the questions that Dostoevsky contends with are issues that still bear enormous significance on how we choose to seek justice.

Red State Redemption: Ten Conservative States That Have Led the Way on Justice Reform

In the early 2000's, many of the states which had enacted the harshest mandatory sentences and "tough on crime" laws were also facing budget crises and desperately overcrowded prisons. In response, lawmakers in state like Texas, Georgia, and South Carolina started to reexamine the entire purpose of their criminal justice systems, and even became leaders in the national push for criminal justice reform.

Issue Analysis

Issue Brief: Reducing Occupational Licensure as an Obstacle for the Formerly Incarcerated

The number of jobs that require a government-approved license has exploded in just the past few decades. This increase in occupational licensure is problematic in its own right, as it reduces competition and access to jobs for those who cannot afford the time and/or money it takes to acquire a license to work.
