No Place for Kids

(Cross-posted from TEDx Talks)

"Tonight, more than 60,000 of America’s young people will be locked in a cell within a couple of feet of a toilet. Some will be forced to remain in isolation, often for many days, at the discretion of a correctional officer with little to no training on the developmental risks associated with such punishment."

Watch Patrick McCarthy, President and CEO of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, as he issues a national call to action urging all Americans to help close every youth prison in the United States.
