In addition to archives of the full range of resources for getting involved in that work, the website now includes new links under Upcoming Events for joining some in-person and online events coming up later in January and links under Getting Involved and under Books, Reports and Articles to several important new reports and other resources, including:
- The new Strategic Plan of the Illinois Reentry Council: Click here to view.
- Reports from The National Academy of Sciences on “Reducing Racial Inequality in Crime and Justice” and from the Sentencing Project on the “Diversion: a Hidden Key To Combatting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Juvenile Justice:
- Resources for the coming expansion of opportunities for higher education in prisons, as Pell Grants once again become available to finance such programs:
John Oliver – Finally, to get a burst of energy for the fight to end cash bail (while we in Illinois wait for the Illinois Supreme Court to uphold the SAFE-T Act) be sure to have a listen below to John Oliver’s energetic advocacy in for bail reform in this “Last Week Tonight” program from last fall.
As always, please feel free to let others who may be interested know of these resources.
