Janet Wolf Discusses the Cradle to Prison Pipeline


Rev. Janet L. Wolf, director of The Haley Farm and Nonviolent Organizing at the Children’s Defense Fund, works to dismantle policies and systems that feed the cradle to prison pipeline. In this video interview, Rev. Wolf  discusses the factors and policies that disproportionately place brown and black children, from the day they are born, on a prison-bound trajectory, she also shares the need to move from a stance of zero tolerance to restorative, or transformational justice, something “Methodists already know a lot about,” she says, referencing related policies in our Book of Resolutions.
