Youth prison is no solution for Girls. The research is clear on how girls, often charged with status or low-level offenses, unnecessarily end up in the deep end of the system. State systems are beginning to recognize this trend and take steps to shrink their deep end girls’ populations, leaving many facilities with very few incarcerated girls and leaving us all with an urgent focus on how to get girls out of youth prisons and close them down for good.

#NoGirlsInPrison Webinar
October 27, 2016 | 2:00 pm EST/11:00 am PST

The #NoGirlsInPrison Webinar will cover what we know about girls who are in the deep end of the justice system, provide a snapshot of where girls are locked up in youth prisons, review lessons learned from an advocacy organization’s experience working to close a youth prison for girls, and explain how a wrap-around continuum of care works for girls.
