This powerful report from Children's Defense Fund documents America's "Cradle to Prison Pipeline," where tens of thousands of children and teens are pushed onto the fast track to prison each year. This national crisis exists at the intersection of poverty and societal neglect where we witness the unfortunate truth that all children's lives are not valued equally. As Connie Curry and Julia Cass report in Part II, countless children, especially poor children "already are in the Pipeline to Prison before taking a single step or uttering a word."
