Resources for Basic Education on
the “Prison Industrial Complex”

  • Local groups may contact us (justice@ppjr.org) to reserve our DVD copy of the documentary “Broken on All Sides,” licensed for public showing. Please plan to allow time for group discussion following the film which runs about 68 minutes.
  • For a reading group, consider either of the books, The New Jim Crow, by Michele Alexander (2010), or Lockdown America: Police and Prisons in the Age of Crisis, by Christian Parenti (2008). Spend several sessions in discussion as the group reads through either book.
  • What do you know about our prisons, jails, and the judicial system? Even many people who have served on juries have never been inside a jail or prison. Do you know people who have been incarcerated? Can we help make the connection?
  • See justice.ppjr.org for additional resources.
