Announcing a New Prison Complex Editor

George Lavender

We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

This week, I’m going to start curating The Prison Complex here at In These Times. (Matt Stroud, who began this blog, is leaving but you can keep up with him on Twitter @ssttrroouudd). I’ll be posting links to articles and reports about prison and jail issues from around the country. I’m also going to be sharing more videos, audio, photos, and infographics over the coming weeks. Look out for short interviews with prisoners, activists, academics, lawyers, and legislators, on issues affecting people in US prisons. With more than two million people behind bars, incarceration is a major public issue, so we want to hear from you too. Let us know what you think in the comments or email me george@​inthesetimes.​com.

Become a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Many of you expressed interest in magazine subscriptions, gift subscriptions, tote bags, events and books —and we’ve added all of those. Some of you said that cost was an issue, so we’ve kept our starting tier at just $5 a month—less than 17 cents a day.

Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with unique rewards at each level, for you to choose from. Check out the new Sustainer program.
