This brief from The Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice considers the question of how to respond most effectively to gang-related youth crime and delinquency. We weigh the most robust research and knowledge about gang activity and about various approaches employed in specific in legislation currently being considered in the US Congress. We hope this document informs debate, discourse and policy making on these crucial matters, not merely this year but as our nation continues to grapple with these complicated issues in the years to come.

In 1974, women imprisoned at New York's maximum-security prison at Bedford Hills staged what is known as the August Rebellion. Protesting the brutal beating of a fellow prisoner, the women fought off guards, holding seven of them hostage, and took over sections of the prison. While many have heard of the 1971 Attica prison uprising, the August Rebellion remains relatively unknown even in activist circles. Resistance Behind Bars is determined to challenge and change such oversights. As it examines daily struggles against appalling prison conditions and injustices, Resistance documents both collective organizing and individual resistance among women incarcerated in the U.S. Emphasizing women's agency in resisting the conditions of their confinement through forming peer education groups, clandestinely arranging ways for children to visit mothers in distant prisons and raising public awareness about their lives, Resistance seeks to spark further discussion and research into the lives of incarcerated women and galvanize much-needed outside support for their struggles.

Parental incarceration is a social problem that clearly affects parents but more can be learned about the problems it creates for their children. These children often face economic hardship, mental/emotional strain, inter-generational criminal behavior and aggressive or antisocial behavior. The purpose of this study was to conduct qualitative interviews with parents who have histories of incarceration at some point in their child's life to explore specific hardships of being a parent, incarcerated. Specific and original semi-structured qualitative questions were created specifically for this study. The questions go in depth regarding the participants' life experiences as a parent once incarcerated. Gathering the information from individuals with real experiences sheds light on the problem of parental incarceration and how to help alleviate the issues that go hand in hand with it. Specific hardships included financial hardship and poverty, education and trauma. These are all real-life experiences that have impacted many families for generations. With the incarceration rate so high; poverty, trauma and education are the negative impact of parental incarceration.

More than 2.7 million children in America have a parent in prison. When a parent is incarcerated it can be very difficult to explain that to a child. This unique coloring book was created to serve as a conversation starter between adults who plan to talk about parental incarceration with affected children. The Prison Alphabet allows each letter of the alphabet to serve as a topic of discussion. By using the letters of the alphabet, this book is a child-friendly approach to helping young children begin to understand what is going on behind bars with their parent or family member. The motivation for this coloring book emerged from Dr. Bahiyyah M. Muhammad's recognition that children with parents in prison have many questions about what prison life is like. During her extensive interviews with children of the incarcerated, children voiced their curiosity and concern about the daily lives of their loved ones. Specially developed books such as The Prison Alphabet can empower children to gain a better understanding of the experience of their loved ones behind bars, show children with parents in prison that they are not alone, and provide resources for caretakers to use to create opportunities to openly discuss the child's feelings and help them cope with their parents' absence. The Prison Alphabet is divided into two sections: The first section is a coloring book and uses the letters of the alphabet, from A thru Z, to explain in a child-friendly manner what life is like inside a prison using terms associated with incarceration. The second section of the book contains a discussion guide to help caretakers and counselors explain parental incarceration to a young child by providing sample responses to children's commonly asked questions about life inside prison. The Prison Alphabet contains illustrations depicting ethnically diverse characters and can therefore be used by any race or gender. Furthermore, it provides opportunities to discuss maternal, paternal and/or familial incarceration. This is the first book in the Project Iron Kids series. Established in 2013, Project Iron Kids is an initiative to increase the number of books for children of the incarcerated.

This book contains interview and photos of women incarcerated in Ohio Reformatory for Women. These women are as varied as those in society, and they cope with incarceration in different ways. They show hope, frustration, stubbornness, pride, and resignation through their candid and sometimes shocking stories. Some inmates tend to make trouble, others just want to do their time and get out, and still others are truly interested in learning practical skills and pursuing an education while imprisoned. Many come from abusive backgrounds. Most have children on the outside, many are single and their children have been taken away from them, and those who enter prison pregnant see their babies for only a few days before they are separated. Interviews with correctional staff provide insights on their frustrations in working with female inmates and their belief that no one approach will rehabilitate all offenders.

The Word Behind Bars and the Paradox of Exile grew out of a workshop that brought together a group of African writers, including many who suffered imprisonment in their home countries and/or exile abroad. For some, the workshop prompted their first attempt to write about their experiences and to compare them with others whose life and art had come under similar constraints. This collection represents their assessments--in prose, poetry, and drama--of the many facets of the exile experience. The papers are as graphic, eloquent, and thought-provoking as they are varied in their subject matter and mode of communication. A powerful fusion of the personal and the political, The Word Behind Bars and the Paradox of Exile offers a timely perspective on conditions of literary production in many parts of Africa today.

Tim Giago weaves memoir, commentary, reflection and poetry together to boldly illustrate his often-horrific experiences as a child at an Indian Mission boarding school run by the Catholic Church. Through his words, the experience of one Indian child becomes a metaphor for the experience of many who were literally ripped from their tribal roots and torn from their families for nine months of the year in order to be molded to better fit into mainstream America. They were not allowed to speak their own languages or follow their traditional customs, and cases of physical, sexual and psychological abuse were common. As a result, the Mission school experience often resulted in isolation, confusion, and intense psychological pain. This has contributed to problems including alcoholism, drug abuse, family violence and general alienation in an entire generation of Native Americans. Dramatic and intensely moving black-and white illustrations by Giago's daughter Denise illuminate the text.

In what the San Francisco Chronicle called an epic work of investigative journalism that lays bare our nation's brutal and counterproductive juvenile prisons and is a clarion call to bring our children home,” Nell Bernstein eloquently argues that there is no good way to lock up a child. Making the radical argument that state-run detention centers should be abolished completely, her passionate and convincing” (Kirkus) book points out that our system of juvenile justice flies in the face of everything we know about what motivates young people to change. Called a devastating read” by Truthout, Burning Down the House received a starredPublishers Weekly review and was an In These Times recommended summer read. Bernstein's heartrending portraits of young people abused by the system intended to protect and rehabilitate” them are interwoven with reporting on innovative programs that provide effective alternatives to putting children behind bars. The result is a work that the Philadelphia Inquirer called a searing indictment and a deft strike at the heart of America's centuries-old practice of locking children away in institution”—a landmark book that has already launched a new national conversation.
