An Exploration of Youth Incarceration in the Hudson Valley

I will be speaking at the Hudson Area Library about my research with Dr. Frankie Bailey from the University of Albany.

This discussion will focus on the impact of youth incarceration in the Hudson Valley.  The discussion builds on the recent release of the book Trapped in a Vice: The Consequences of Confinement for Young People (Rutgers University Press, 2018) by Dr. Alexandra Cox, formerly of SUNY New Paltz, and which explores the consequences of a juvenile justice system that is aimed at promoting change in the lives of young people, yet ultimately relies upon tools and strategies that enmesh them in a system that they struggle to move beyond.
