Audio broadcast "It's all business" out now

"It's all business" is a short broadcast that discusses the role lobbying firms play in exacerbating the current prison crisis in California.

Lobbying firms represent special interest groups in California, promoting and opposing legislation based on the agenda of their clients.  These firms specialize in strategic political marketing both to the legislature and to the public through the media. This broadcast aims to highlight the influential role lobbying firms play in shaping California's criminal justice system.
