Discussion on “Bodies and Bondage: A History of California’s Prisons” with Jared Rudolph of the Prison Advocacy Network

June 15, 2017

Jared Rudolph is a criminal defense attorney and the founder of Prisoner Reentry Network (prisonerreentrynetwork.org), a non-profit that supports successful transitions from incarceration to the community. California's prison system started as a privately-run barge anchored in the Bay, and was embroiled in corruption, political scandal, and violence. Since then, our system has grown to incarcerate more people than the population of Berkeley.
