Brent Orrell sat down with Dirk Van Velzen of the Prison Scholar Fund to discuss his work on criminal justice reform at The American Enterprise Institute. We discuss topics such as personal agency, the stress experienced by corrections officers, restoring Pell grants for prisoners, and the importance of human flourishing. Brent Orrell believes that “government is a reflection of who we are as people”, so join us for a conversation on how we can shape the criminal justice system to better reflect our values as a people and nation.
