News Inside Issue Two

The second edition of The Marshall Project's print publication explores the concept of freedom: mental, physical and spiritual.

The second issue of News Inside, our print publication that is distributed to prisons and jails throughout the country, explores questions of freedom. In this edition, I have included excerpts from letters that I’ve received that show how much our readers believe in the notion of redemption and understand that information is the path toward it.

As I write in this issue, “So many of you shared your dreams for freedom. Some have innocence claims, others have parole aspirations, hoping to finally get that new birth certificate, emblazoned with your release date. Still others, after deep changes in their hearts and minds, simply hope for a sentence reduction.

We’ll never put our work behind a paywall, and we’ll never put a limit on the number of articles you can read. Our ability to take on big, groundbreaking investigations — the kind that can lead to real impact — doesn’t depend on advertisers or corporate owners. It depends on people like you. Our independence is our strength, and your donation makes us stronger.
