Justice Integrity Project Holiday Message

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Washington Botanical GardensThe Justice Integrity Project thanks our readers for your interest and inputs. As in years past, we share our hopes for a happy holiday season and a New Year of health and happiness in a just, prosperous and peaceful society.

To that end, we are going to be describing shortly a plan for readers to enhance effectiveness in fighting for justice. This draws on proven methods so that we can together spend more time during 2015 in success for the reform goals we share, and less time chronicling injustice.

In the spirit of our mission, we convey also below several compelling holiday messages.

Finally, we share messages from liberal pundit Bill Moyers, who describes the appalling imprisonment statistics for Black males, and from conservative columnist George Will, who protests the massive imprisonment across the nation of those convicted of possessing small amounts of drugs.  

Even (or especially) on holiday, these are reminders of the important work that remains after we renew our bonds and spirits.

Looking ahead, we'll be drawing on proven methods for enhancing our effectiveness in reform. This includes tips drawn from the work of organizational strategist Sarah Robinson, author of Fierce Loyalties: Unlocking the DNA of Wildly Successful Communities. I've heard her speak at the National Press Club, and can recommend her book as a practical tool for this and similar groups.

Until then, with best regards,

-- Andrew Kreig
