Dan Berger publishes op-ed on initiative to reduce the American jail population

IAS faculty member Dan Berger publishes op-ed in Truthout about the MacArthur Foundation's $75 million initiative to reduce the American jail population. As part of that program, the Foundation has asked jail staff at 20 municipalities around the country to work with judges, prosecutors, court administrators, police and correctional officials to reduce the size of the jail population. In his op-ed, Berger advises a broader approach to prison reform. "We simply cannot afford to leave prison reform to the 'experts' who gave us mass incarceration," he writes.
