This week in Social Impact Across the U.S.:

  • Recently nominated by the National Magazine Awards, “Segregation Now” is a special report by Pro Publica and The Atlantic on how segregation has persisted in schools despite the Supreme Court ruling over 60 years ago that “separate but equal” has no place in education.
  • The Marshall Project explores the “Politics of Mercy” in the U.S., or more specifically the use of clemency (pardons and commutations) in states. Considered by some as the “third rail” of criminal justice politics, clemency has fallen by the wayside due to political pressure to keep criminals behind bars. This may be about to change.

What do you think about what’s happening in social impact across the U.S.? How might Philly learn from other cities and states? Please leave a comment to help us bring the national and local conversations together.
