Denver (Colorado) — She's just 21 and she's already won several awards. She lives in one of the poorest parts of town, near Lincoln Park. Spanish-born Erin Rosa is one of the few local journalists who really tries to lift the lid on the prison industry. She reminds us that The United States incarcerates one out of a hundred of its citizens. That’s more percentage-wise than even China. Erin Rosa has already worked for papers like the Columbia Journalism Review, The Huffington Post and the Colorado Independent. Over in France we noticed her series of articles in the latter about Supermax, the Alcatraz of the Rockies. Erin has recently joined the Center for American Progress, a left-leaning Washington think-tank.
