Severed Ties: The Human Toll of Prisons

Welcome to our new Truthout series, Severed Ties: The Human Toll of Prisons. When a person is incarcerated, that imprisonment has reverberating effects on their family, loved ones and community. This 10-part series will dive deeply into these impacts, showing how with the incarceration of more than 2 million Americans, many millions more are harmed by prisons in lasting ways. Join us as we lay bare the way in which incarceration ruptures the human ties that hold a society together -- and explore the strategies by which families, activists and incarcerated people are striving to map a different path.
