MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions: John Howard Association

As the sole independent watchdog over the state’s correctional facilities, the John Howard Association of Illinois promotes an efficient justice system that ensures public safety while treating the incarcerated with dignity and helping them successfully reintegrate into society.

Through objective monitoring and close collaboration with those working in and affected by the justice system, the Association provides visibility into typically closed institutions and educates the public and policymakers about the real consequences of criminal justice policies.

Julianne Hill served as producer and writer on this video announcing John Howard Association as a recipient of a $500,000 MacArthur Award.
