"Tough on Crime, Tough on Families?"

Sept. 22, 2016

On Sept. 19 at 3 p.m., the American Academy of Political and Social Science, Right on Crime, and the Scholars Strategy Network hosted a Capitol Hill policy seminar on the effects of over-incarceration and criminal justice contact on the American family. The briefing capitalized on new research to give policymakers and advocates a clear and succinct understanding of what science tells us about the family effects of parents’ criminal justice involvement, and the most promising state and federal approaches to improving public safety and family health.

The seminar was informed by a recent issue of The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science which included work with FFCWS data.
