Obstacles to Justice
Examining the Relationships Between Arts Organizations and Probation Offices in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties
As criminal justice reform has gained momentum in the United States, it is worth evaluating the relationships between correctional institutions, parole and probation offices, and the arts organizations that operate within them. This study examines these relationships in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties in Southern California. Best practices and methods are explored, as well as the ways in which the institutions that constitute the justice system can better support arts organizations in their efforts to work with justice-involved young people.
