Welcome to Changing Lives, Changing Minds, the official blog of Changing Lives Through Literature (CLTL)!
The Pew Center on the States reported earlier this year that approximately one out of every one hundred Americans are behind bars and that 50 percent of inmates released will find themselves incarcerated again within three years.
The road to change begins through awareness and discussion. Changing Lives, Changing Minds will discuss news and ongoing concerns surrounding CLTL, criminal justice reform, and the struggle for incarceration alternatives twice a week. We invite you to share your insight and opinions in the comment section of each entry.
