Hey Family!

What would you say if I told you that almost 40 percent of people currently in the American prison system are incarcerated unnecessarily?  That’s the latest report from the Brennan Center, which gave recommendations on how to reduce the prison population as well as steps to change how we deliver justice to people who commit lower level crimes.

Read the report here, and tell me what you think.  I’ll talk to Lauren-Brooke Eisen, the Senior Counsel for the Brennan Center’s Justice Program about their analysis.

I don’t know a better way to kick of 2017 at a time like this than to talk about criminal justice reform, one of the premier issues affecting our communities.

Tune in today on WERA-FM 96.7 from 4-5p ET or check me out online on Facebook @EnlightenMeonWERA or on Twitter @EnlightenMeWERA.
