Northeastern University’s Cradle-to-Prison Pipeline (C2P) project is hosting an initial convening of interdisciplinary advocates and organizers interested in collaborating to dismantle the pipeline: C2P – Connecting Silos and Mapping Points of Intervention in the Cradle-To-Prison Pipeline. 

The project’s goal is to track and map the intersecting institutional, legal and societal factors, and systemic racism, that contribute to the pipeline in order to locate interventions to disrupt its devastating effects on our communities.   
The C2P project is a Northeastern collaboration involving the School of Law’s Center for Public Interest Advocacy and Collaboration, the College of Art, Media & Design, and Boston Area Research Initiative. By bringing together the university’s leadership in public policy, design thinking, and data analysis, we can create powerful tools to help disrupt the systems that are currently funneling far too many of our young people of color into the penal system.
