The New Press, a public interest book publisher, and the Center for American Progress (CAP), a public policy think tank, are partnering to publish a forthcoming book. The collection of essays featuring criminal justice reform ideas from formerly and currently incarcerated individuals will be published in 2020.

The book has the working title of What We Know and is being edited by Daryl Atkinson and Vivian Nixon, both formerly incarcerated individuals now leading criminal legal reform organizations. They are also members of the steering committee of the Formerly Incarcerated Convicted People’s Family Movement (FICPFM), a national effort to bring the voices of formerly incarcerated people and their families to the justice reform table.
