Why are black girls treated more harshly by schools and the juvenile justice system than white girls who behave the same way? A new study from the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality suggests a contributing cause: the “adultification” of black girls.
Researchers have linked solitary confinement to lasting psychological consequences, including anti-social behavior, anxiety and self-harm. Solitary confinement is most damaging to young people because they are still developing mentally and physically. Yet the use of room confinement for discipline, punishment, administrative convenience, retaliation and staffing shortages remains common practice, and has been documented in reports such as the Foundation’s Maltreatment of Youth in U.S. Juvenile Correctional Facilities. This maltreatment undermines the development of young people who get into trouble with the law and exposes them to grave dangers while failing to improve public safety.

Since 1980, the number of incarcerated people has grown by 500%. Many of those caged behind bars haven’t even been convicted of a crime — they just can’t afford to pay bail. This unjust use of pre-trial incarceration has inflicted catastrophic harm on to Black families in particular. Black people are over two times more likely to be arrested and once arrested are twice as likely to be caged before trial. Even a few days in jail can ruin a person’s life, cause them to lose their job, their housing and even some lose their children.
But we are resisting the use of corrupt bail practices to funnel Black folks into the system of mass incarceration. On July 18 we are launching a mobilization project, fueled by people power and aimed to reform criminal justice and hold prosecutors accountable.
