Title Targeted Populations: Adjudicated Youth / Adults
Summary Many stories about the criminal justice system focus on race and poverty and not from the lens of people with disabilities. Approximately 750,000 people with disabilities are currently imprisoned or more than 30% of the prison population (500,000 with cognitive impairment, 250,000 with mobility problems and 140,000 people who are blind/vision loss). The majority of them are predominantly African-American, Hispanic, or new immigrants who face challenges already compounded by effects of racism, ableism and other forms of discrimination and whose disabilities were not appropriately addressed, diagnosed, or treated. This E3TC page is updated regularly with information on this topic.
