        This page features Be the Evidence Project Publications, Fact Sheets, White Paper, Report and Other Project Generated Materials. Please check often for updates. 



        The White Paper has arrived! On Saturday, October 8, 2011, Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service, Be the Evidence Project hosted a forum to ‘put a face and a name’ to this rapidly growing human rights and social justice issue: the aging prisoner crisis. For example, prisoners, aged 50 and older, comprise approximately ten percent of the overall prison population and had increased tenfold since 1990. Similar situations are noted internationally, including Canada and England. The national and international correctional care system, which was not designed to function as long-term health care facility, is ill prepared to address older prisoners’ complex physical and mental health needs, while in prison and post prison re-entry and community reintegration. This situation clearly needs a concerted and collaborative effort among researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and community members to craft and implement an effective response. International experts came to join us in speaking out about the crisis of aging prisoners for this historic event at Fordham University! The purpose of this follow-up White Paper was to bring together a group of scholars and practitioners (who gave generously of their time) to contribute their work so that keystakeholders and the general public can become more aware of the crisis that is occurring in prisons around the world.  Edited by Maschi, Morrissey, Immarigeon, and Sutfin, the White Paper includes nationally and internationally known experts presented research and best practices on topics related to older adults involved in the criminal justice system (especially prison), age specific correctional programming, elder and family justice, and criminal justice policy reform.

        This white paper was purposely made available as a free and public document so that any professional, organization, or concerned citizen can use this information to help advance public awareness of the crisis related to aging prisoners. It also provides recommendation on what we all can do about it, which includes to improve policy and practice with older adults in the criminal justice system.
        Please feel free to contact the Be the Evidence Project if you would like to become more involved in this project at tmaschi@fordham.edu or btep@fordham.edu.  We also invite your feedback about the White Paper and our ongoing projects.
