Incarceration and the Right to Childhood: What the U.S. Can Learn From South Africa


"Given that the U.S. imprisons its citizens at a rate higher than any other country in the world, and2.7 million children in the U.S. have a parent in prison (as of 2010), what will be the fallout of our incarceration practices—not just for the individual children impacted, but for their future children, their communities, the future of this country’s reputation at home and abroad?"
