Rollins, Rachel. "Inequality and Injustice." Open Source (June 11, 2020) ["The job at hand is coming to terms with American reality, 400 years of history and day-to-day evidence in work and wealth gaps, in health and hierarchy, in criminal injustice and scandalous policing. The charge is racism, and in a national roar of response to the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the leading prescription seems to be anti-racism. That includes both quiet introspection and very public reordering of public-safety enforcement, for starters. Change is coming, and in a few instances like the one we’re dwelling on this hour, change has already come. Rachael Rollins got elected District Attorney two years ago for Boston and the adjoining cities of Chelsea, Winthrop, and Revere. Her campaign promise was to change the system – to de-carcerate criminal justice; to decriminalize poverty, drug disorders and mental illness; to drop prosecutions of a dozen or more petty crimes, like shoplifting and carrying drug paraphernalia."]

Sered, Danielle. "Repairing Justice: An Alternative to Prison." On the Media (July 31, 2019)  ["We’ve talked about how the law-and-order approach doesn’t work, and that we don’t want to keep locking people in jail for every infraction. But that raises the question: what, then, do we do to address injustice when it appears? Rather than the isolation and violence that prison breeds, some advocates are pushing for a new approach… one based not on punishment, but on truth and reconciliation. It’s called "restorative justice," and in this podcast extra, Bob speaks with Danielle Sered, executive director of Common Justice and a pioneer of the practice."]
