2014 American Leadership Forum Report Update

This document provides a 2014 update and research supplement to the American Leadership Forum’s original 2009 report which addressed the racial disparities, risk factors and high costs of the Prison Pipeline in Texas and presented promising local programs investing in prevention, early intervention, and solutions. Representatives from the original 13 organizations profiled were interviewed and asked to describe program changes, growth, and accomplishments since 2009. Many initiatives originally highlighted have seen substantial expansion in both programming and number of children impacted.
