This week in Washington, D.C., lawmakers are debating criminal justice reform.

Two major bills that will impact the country’s incarcerated adult and youth populations are moving through the House and Senate.

The Prison Policy Initiative is an advocacy group that states it is against “mass criminalization” and they have put together a 50 state analysis of who is incarcerated in America.

KJZZ’s Jimmy Jenkins spoke with one of the editors of the study and joined The Show to talk about what he learned.
