Women, Families & The Criminal (In)justice System FILLING
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity filling up

Across the U.S., women’s state prison populations grew 834% between 1978 and 2015 — more than double the pace of the growth among men. Black and Latina women are six and two times more likely than white women to end up in prison, respectively. But our mainstream conversations about incarceration often miss the mark, ignoring critical realities unique to women and especially women of color. And, how do families fare when a female caregiver is incarcerated? What unique challenges do women and girls face during re-entry or while on probation or parole? Hear from panelists leading efforts to bring women’s voices and their unique concerns into the process of reforming and overhauling our system of criminal injustice.
