Announcing a New Prison Complex Editor

George Lavender

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.
