During this first series we will talk about the history of youth incarceration and how we got here.

The underlying theme will be solidarity from the outside in. We will highlight the different times in history where solidarity tactics have been historically used in regards to JTDC by organized labor, such as pickets, strikes, and boycotts.

Today we plan to practice this solidarity by writing to those that are incarcerated. By writing, we are acknowledging to them our support and the ability to have their stories heard.
