ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Criminal justice reform is about more than police and prisons. It's about changing the way prosecutors do their jobs. It's about schools, community centers, parks, drug treatment and other resources that stop or delay interactions with the criminal justice system. It's about letting people vote and letting go of trumped-up claims of voter fraud. Lawyer, reporter and criminal justice reform advocate Josie Duffy Rice helps us think through the system, and the role we can play in fixing it, beyond our Law and Order: SVU imagination. Please note: beginning at 45:30, Amina and Josie discuss SVU, including the ways the show (in)accurately depicts sexual assault allegations. The conversation is not graphic, but words like rape and rapist are used, and we discuss how survivors are treated by police and the justice system.
