Financial incentives drive many of the policies that perpetuate mass incarceration. How is the privatization of our criminal justice system impacting communities? Both Sides of the Bars welcomes Lauren-Brooke Eisen, Senior Counsel in the Brennan Center’s Justice Program where she focuses on improving the criminal justice process through legal reforms - specifically how the criminal justice system is funded.

"Both Sides of the Bars" is a discussion-driven television program hosted by our Associate Vice President of Policy, Khalil A. Cumberbatch. Featuring experts within the criminal justice field, the monthly program tackles critical questions about how the current system works, its intersections with social justice, and highlights the efforts that are being made to improve the lives of those impacted.

The program is produced in conjunction with Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN), a public access channel in New York, NY, but has national relevance and reach. "Both Sides of the Bars" is currently syndicated on 20 television stations, in twelve states.
