Criminal Justice

Postindustrial is focused on making justice data public and understanding how kids end up in the justice system. What steps can be taken to increase access to criminal justice data? How can data analysis reduce incarceration rates? Postindustrial will focus on stories centered on keeping kids out of lockup, reducing wrongful convictions, and eliminating bail — among other integral and under-covered topics in the criminal justice arena.
