Reviews

Praise for Change from Within:
"A cohesive picture of the goals, methods, and mindset behind this movement for change. . . . These reformers reckon with the past and try to map a way forward by helping draw a blueprint for chief prosecutors throughout the country to enact compassionate reform based on successful and data-driven examples."
--Booklist

"Elected prosecutors helped establish our country's reliance on mass incarceration, and this book shows that they can play a major role in tearing it down."
--Ebony Underwood, founder and CEO at We Got Us Now

"Art has an uncanny ability to change hearts and minds. The vibrant and emotional pieces of the formerly incarcerated artists in this book tell a story equally as powerful as the words on the page."
--Agnes Gund, founder and chair, Art for Justice Fund

"This book demonstrates why every single person in this country must pay attention to their local prosecutor's race."
--Vincent Schiraldi, senior fellow, Columbia Justice Lab

"A moving book about the people trying to make meaningful change from inside a profoundly flawed institution."
--Alexandra Natapoff, Lee S. Kreindler Professor of Law, Harvard Law School, and author of Punishment Without Crime

"A thoughtful perspective on a new breed of prosecutors struggling to right egregious wrongs of the past. Change from Within presents a moving, clear-eyed, and ultimately uplifting attestation of the future we can create together."
--Barry Scheck, co-founder and special counsel, The Innocence Project

"This book highlights courageous prosecutors who have rejected overly simplistic 'tough on crime' slogans, instead finding innovative ways to fulfill their important missions."
--Barbara McQuade, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan
