More great new Politico Magazine coverage now on "Justice Reform: Prison Conditions"

In this post a couple of months ago, I noted that the Politico Magazine had produced a bunch of great new articles on criminal justice reform issues under the heading "Justice Reform: The Decarceration Issue."  Those article are still collected at this link, but they are now topped by another great new set of pieces under the heading "Justice Reform: Prison Conditions."  Here are the lengthy pieces under this heading with their full headlines:

The Lifers Changing Prisons From Inside: Over 40 years, the National Lifers of America rewrote the rules of prison reform. Now they've hit a new obstacle: connecting with the outside world during a pandemic.

San Quentin’s Breakthrough Prison Newsroom: A huge podcast hit and a revived newspaper mean that policymakers really have to listen. 

10 Races That Could Change the System: Forget Washington. The real challenges to the system are coming from cities and states. Here are the ones to watch.

How U.S. Prisons Became Ground Zero for Covid-19: Tight quarters, strained hygiene practices and guards moving to and from their community put prisons at risk of becoming coronavirus hotbeds.
