With a foreword by Bill Clinton and acknowledgments of the Koch Brothers and the Heritage Foundation, Solutions: American Leaders Speak Out on Criminal Justice explores bipartisan opposition to mass incarceration. Brennan Center for Justice President Michael Waldman ’87 and Justice Program Director Inimai Chettiar asked elected officials, advocates, and presidential candidates such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, Kamala Harris, Martin O’Malley, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Bryan Stevenson, and Scott Walker to contribute essays proposing solutions to over-incarceration. “In this time of increased political polarization,” former president Clinton wrote in the foreword, “there is one area where we have a genuine chance at bipartisan cooperation: the over-imprisonment of people who did not commit serious crimes.”
