Michelle Brown Wins 2009 PASS Award

The National Council on Crime and Delinquency, a non-profit organization in Oakland, CA, has given Michelle Brown’s book, The Culture of Punishment, a 2009 PASS award! The PASS Awards (Prevention for a Safer Society) is the only national recognition of print and broadcast journalists, TV news and feature reporters, producers, writers, and those in film and literature who try to focus America’s attention on our criminal and juvenile justice systems, and child welfare systems in a thoughtful and considerate manner.

NCCD established the PASS Awards to recognize and honor media efforts that further public understanding of child welfare issues and crime control and prevention issues—especially those involving young people. NCCD is seeking the stories that illustrate current realities or the promise of reform, especially those that help people understand the complex causes of crime and what must be done to prevent and control it.
