ABSTRACT

Youth Incarceration During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Family Insights   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Method: "On September 23, 2021, a diverse group of parents came together from across the United States to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic on their justice-involved children. They shared their experiences and critical insights into the realities of the youth justice system during the pandemic, as well as recommendations for improving policy and practice. While the session was broadly framed, many of the participants shared the experience of having a child incarcerated during the pandemic which focused the conversation on that topic. This document summarizes key findings from the discussion and recommendations for state and local policymakers who want to create safer, healthier environments for justice-involved youth and promote better outcomes for young people, their families, and their communities."
