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.

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.
