Capital City Correction

This morning I attended a briefing put on by D.C. Lawyers for Youth and the Campaign for Youth Justice on the incarceration of youth in the D.C. jail. The report provides a sobering reminder of the effects that adult facilities can have on youthful offenders. It also highlights the great work these two organizations are spearheading on behalf of youth who are often dismissed or denigrated. Privileged to collaborate with advocates who put research to good use in the service of others. Read the report if you haven't already done so.
