We’re thrilled to have helped Hank Green of Vlog Brothers, Kurzgesagt, and Visual.ly produce this amazing under-4-minute video about Mass Incarceration in the United States.
John Green responds to Hank’s video about Mass Incarceration with his own insightful comments on racial disparities and why the U.S. has the world’s highest incarceration rate.
The National Academies recently released a great video highlighting some findings from their 2014 report, The Growth of Incarceration in the United States: Exploring Causes and Consequences. Take a look at mass incarceration in perspective:

All of our recent reports about prison/jail growth, racial disparities, and more, re-organized by state.
Two incumbents avoid facing off by going 17 miles out of the way to use a large prison as a political pawn.
This predatory industry wants to literally stand in between the incarcerated and their families by replacing human contact with computer chats.
