Political Report

The Appeal Political Report casts a light on the local politics of mass incarceration and criminal justice reform. It highlights often-overlooked but highly consequential local elections, drawing out their stakes, contrasts, and repercussions. It focuses on policies and decisions implemented by local officials to reveal the political choices sustaining mass incarceration, and on alternatives that call those choices into question. It will continue providing new tools that show how this national movement is made up of a multitude of decentralized struggles.

The Appeal Political Report is edited by Daniel Nichanian.
