Mass Incarceration in America

One in three adults in America holds a criminal record. In 2020, 2.3 million Americans live behind bars. In the past 40 years, America’s incarceration population has increased by 700 percent, yet the country’s criminal justice system is not serving human dignity well.

Pervasive discrimination prevents successful rehabilitation. One of the most pressing civil rights issues of our time is the disproportionate incarceration of people of color in the United States, particularly black men. Those with a history of arrest or conviction are hampered from accessing jobs, housing, and educational opportunities and these restrictions drive higher rates of recidivism.

Correlation between arts education and life effectiveness. Interdisciplinary studies show cognitive, social, and personal competencies are cultivated through arts instruction in prison. Music education gives focus and hope to those in prison and music mentorships in reentry give support and new influences to help those struggling with issues of self-worth find confidence and courage to meet their challenges.
