Money Can't Buy Criminal Justice Reform. But It Can Fuel a Movement

For decades, politicians have favored more prisons, more criminalization and more pervasive uses of law enforcement, despite considerable evidence that incarceration does not reduce crime and that crime survivors strongly support rehabilitationrather than punishment.
