Spotlight on Mass Incarceration, Police Contact, and School Discipline

Thursday, Sep 3, 2020

A core strength of the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing study is its significant representation of Black and Latinx families. Many researchers have used these data to study the impacts of mass incarceration, police contact, and school discipline, which disproportionately affect communities of color. Each week, we will highlight a publication from our archive that contributes to the national conversation on the American criminal justice system.
