b&b120 Is this the beginning of the end of private prisons?

We have Stephanie Damon-Moore back on the show (author of AbolishPrisons.org) to talk about the exciting Department of Justice announcement that they will begin winding down their use of private prison companies to run their federal prisons.

While there is nothing set in stone, this is hugely symbolic for the movement to dismantle the prison industrial complex and we talk about how you can take action to make sure the DOJ makes good on its promise and support the humane treatment of the currently and formerly incarcerated.
