Moving Beyond Awareness: The Role of Constituent Advocacy for Creating Effective Criminal Justice Reform

Andrea C. James

Andrea James, author of Upper Bunkies Unite and Other Thoughts on the Politics of Mass Incarceration and co-founder of Families for Justice as Healing, will offer some suggestions for our involvement in reforming our broken system.
