Reentry Radio: Consequences for Communities



The fifth episode of Reentry Radio comes from the March 5, 2015 Occasional Series session on mass incarceration’s consequences on American communities. Keynote speaker Dr. Todd Clear, Provost Rutgers University-Newark presents his research “Predicting Crime through Incarceration: The Impact of Rates of Prison Cycling on Rates of Crime in Communities.” His groundbreaking report explores the question of whether the effects of mass incarceration increases rather than decreases neighborhood crime rates. Dr. Clear is joined in this discussion by Julio Medina, City Councilmember Jumaane Williams, Kate Rubin, and moderator Kevin Barnes-Ceeney.
