Mass Incarceration

Since 2015, the Clark-Fox Family Foundation has dedicated time and effort to developing an Ecosystem Map of the Mass Incarceration System in the United States and sharing it with community leadership in the form of presentations. The presentations are built around these maps and meant to convey the complexity of the system as well as its ability to be self-sustaining and impenetrable.

Research

The Foundation’s research has shown the ecosystem of mass incarceration to be an intentionally well-hidden system of oppression that needs to be exposed to the public, especially community, criminal justice, corporate, faith, educational, not-for-profit and political leaders.
