Cradle to Prison Pipeline

CDF’s Cradle to Prison Pipeline® campaign, launched in 2007, seeks to dismantle the urgent national crisis that leaves a Black boy born in 2001 with a one in three risk of going to prison in his lifetime, and a Latino boy with a one in six risk of the same fate. The Pipeline is fueled by pervasive poverty, racial disparities, inadequate health and mental health care, gaps in early childhood development, disparate educational opportunities, chronic abuse and neglect, and overburdened and ineffective juvenile justice systems.
