Danielle Sered and Nikkita Oliver
The head of an award-winning Brooklyn-based organization, Common Justice, devoted to restorative justice and alternatives to the present system of incarceration, Danielle Sered is here with her new book, Until We Reckon: Violence, Mass Incarceration, and a Road to Repair (The New Press).
“The work [Sered is doing] is truly impressive and innovative. . . . [It] encompasses two seemingly contradictory threads—one is diverting violent criminals from the prison system, and the other is helping victims heal. I found it completely, radically original and generally fascinating. . . . Truly remarkable work.” —Scott Stossel, The Atlantic.
“Sered issue[s] a clarion call to take [violent crime] seriously and handle it with nuance. Sered reminds us that, if we’re serious about reducing mass incarceration, we need to grapple seriously, and safely, with people who have committed violent offenses and the survivors of their crimes.” —HuffPost.
