Dedicating this month to Criminal Justice is partly self-indulgent. That admission aside, I do believe these discussions need to happen on a much more public forum. We can’t fix the system unless and until we acknowledge which parts are broken. And we can’t support what works unless and until we’re confident the facts support the hypothesis. But this series of posts isn’t all seriousness and definitely isn’t dull. I’m honored to have some fascinating guests who openly share their personal experiences and knowledge with us. Each and every post throughout the month of February is written by a different guest, in their own voices, expressing their own opinions. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.
