Incarceration And The Environment
Two of the larger issues of our time, environmental degradation and mass incarceration, come together in one movement with The Prison Ecology Project.
Its founders noticed that prisons and jails are often not environmentally friendly--not just to their residents, but to people who live nearby.
So the project focuses its attention on finding remedies for populations inside and outside prison walls.
The PE project is under the umbrella of the Human Rights Defense Center; its director, Paul Wright, and project coordinator Panagioti Tsolkas visit The Exchange.
