In related news, Meek has written a new op-ed in the New York Times in which he advocates for prison reform.
“It’s clearer than ever that a disproportionate number of men and women of color are treated unfairly by a broken criminal justice system,” Meek writes. “The system causes a vicious cycle, feeding upon itself — sons and daughters grow up with their parents in and out of prison, and then become far more likely to become tied up in the arrest-jail-probation cycle. This is bad for families and our society as a whole.
