Weekend reading for a bit of reform light amidst darker times

Turning the clocks back an hour makes November darker times, and watching the news these days is not often a source of light. But, even with so much election uncertainty, I am feeling reasonably certain that there will be continued momentum for at least some forms on criminal justice reform in the weeks and months ahead. These recent commentaries and stories contribute to my cautious optimism:

From Gabriel J. Chin and David Schlussel, "Federal Certificate Offers New Hope for Americans in ‘Internal Exile’"

From Holly Harris, "America needs the second step toward criminal justice reforms"

From NPR, "Jason Flom, The Music Executive With An Ear For Injustice"

From Arthur Rizer and Bruce Western, "'Public Safety': It Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Does"

From Vincent M. Southerland, "Good Governance Paper No. 19: The Criminal Legal System — Toward a Paradigm Shift"
