The SSRC collaborated with Dr. Artika Tyner at the University of St. Thomas on The Impact of Incarceration on Families, Communities, and Offenders.
The Impact of Incarceration on Families, Communities, and Offenders focused on the social and economic impacts of incarceration on children, families, communities, and offenders. Dr. Tyner discussed the Campaign for Prison Phone Justice, which explores the costs of prison phone calls, and how financial barriers to communication affect incarcerated individuals, their families, and communities. Dr. Tyner described how her research findings have helped promote community engagement and advance policy changes.
