A few of the recent pieces I recommend reading:
Ta-Nehisi Coates’s testimony at the House Judiciary Committee hearing “HR 40 and the Path to Restorative Justice” (also see his 2014 “The Case for Reparations”)
Caitlin Dickerson in The New York Times:‘There Is a Stench’: No Soap and Overcrowding in Detention Centers for Migrant Children
Eli Saslow in the Washington Post: ‘Urgent needs from head to toe’: This clinic had two days to fix a lifetime of needs
Gretchen Goldman at Nature: Trump’s plan would make government stupid
Julia Belluz at Vox: A shocking number of women are harassed, ignored, or mistreated during childbirth
And you probably don’t need me to tell you to read E. Jean Carroll’s “Hideous Men” in New York, but it very much fits in this parade of horrors.
