Representing the 1 in 100 Americans behind bars and those in the community who care about them and are affected by these incredible numbers, I ask my students in every Inside-Out course that I teach to share one key thought with the larger public. I’ve shared photos from my previous Inside-Out classes on this Public Criminology blog, and will continue to do so as students put time and care into their messages. This is the first time I’ve been able to put up photos of young men in the youth correctional facility. I think the first photo here is all youth and vulnerability and this particular young man makes his case eloquently. Please visit the We are the 1 in 100 tumblr site to see many more photos and sentiments of those inside and outside of correctional facilities. I invite you also to submit your own photo.
