    YWCA MASS INCARCERATION FORUM 2015-2016
    Mass Incarceration policies in the United States are a crime. We sentence more people, we incarcerate longer and have higher recidivism rates than any other “advanced culture”. Either we are very bad people, or our sentencing and imprisonment policies need to be changed.

    The YWCA of Southern Arizona has been studying these policies for this past year, and has presented the following forums: History of Incarceration in the US, Women and People of Color in Prisons, Private Prisons and Detention of Immigrants and Successful Reentry. The policies we have in place impact our families and our community in serious ways we often know nothing about.
