AKA And Delta Judges Team Up For Programs To Fight The Prison Pipeline

The pipeline to prison is a problem that disproportionately affects the African-American community and four Black women who are judges and members of Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta have teamed up to create a program in Dallas to combat it.

The program they have created is called Pipeline to Possibilities and it focuses on changing the pipeline to prison in the local school system around Dallas. Through the program, youth are educated on various aspects of the justice system and taught life skills, redirecting them from engaging in criminal behavior.
