Community Organizers and Youth Advocates from SWOP (Southwest Organizing Project), Pegasus Legal Services for Children, Youth First and Millions for Prisoners New Mexico join in a collective community conversation to bring attention to the often long-ignored problem of youth incarceration - many argue is a gateway and avenue for exploitation, modern day slavery, systemic and historical trauma imposed on our most vulnerable for profit. They highlight their increased vulnerability in all areas especially during COVID-19. Tune in for Part Two of this vital community conversation tomorrow, Tuesday May 12, 2020.
