Stand up for justice

The first $2,500 we raise through Tuesday, May 2 will be matched by a generous donor as part of the “Valley Gives Day” challenge. Can you stand up for smart and effective criminal justice policy with a gift today?.

Thank you.

P.S. If we meet our goal, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts will enter us into a drawing to have all of your gifts matched a second time!
Graph showing the increasing wealth disparity by race and ethnicity between incarcerated and non-incarcerated young men starting at age 14. Whites who have never been incarcerated have the highest incomes, followed by Hispanic never incarcerated, Whites who have been incarcerated, Blacks who have never been incarcerated, Hispanics who have been incarcerated and Blacks who have been incarcerated.

Data Source: Redrawn by the Prison Policy Initiative from Table 4 of Zaw et al., Race Wealth and Incarceration: Results from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (2016). (Graph: Meredith Booker, 2016)

This graph originally appeared in The Crippling Effect of Incarceration on Wealth.

Previous research in <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Black-Wealth-White-Perspective-Inequality/dp/0415951674/prisonsuckscom">Black Wealth, White Wealth: A New Perspective on Racial Inequality</a> highlights the gap between the wealth of White people and that of Black people. This graph shows that even Whites that experienced incarceration have higher levels of wealth than Blacks that have never experienced incarceration.
