Summer Reading: YES! Magazine and Reason Magazine

leave a comment »

At my local Borders yesterday I noticed not just one but two magazines on the newsstand featuring criminal justice topics this month:

  • YES! Magazine‘s Beyond Prisons issue features articles on Washington State’s prison university program, Maori responses to youth crime, Hawaii’s women’s prison, and more. For activists, organizers, etc.: YES! licenses all its content through Creative Commons, so you can reprint the articles in your own publications without worrying about copyright. Just make sure you follow the magazine’s reprint guidelines here.
  • Reason Magazine‘s Criminal Injustice issue includes pieces on the California prison guards’ union, the relationship between incarceration and the crime rate, sexual assault behind bars, the immigration detention system, and more.
I’m glad to see publications from across the political spectrum taking up the cause of criminal justice reform.
