Truthout TV host, Ted Asregadoo, speaks to Victoria Law about her article in Truthout entitled, “Closing Cages: People Power Helps Stop Youth Incarceration.” The discussion centers on funding priorities of local governments for youth jails and the defunding of schools and rec centers that are integral in giving young people a hand up.
The stakes have never been higher (and our need for your support has never been greater).
For over two decades, Truthout’s journalists have worked tirelessly to give our readers the news they need to understand and take action in an increasingly complex world. At a time when we should be reaching even more people, big tech has suppressed independent news in their algorithms and drastically reduced our traffic. Less traffic this year has meant a sharp decline in donations.
The fact that you’re reading this message gives us hope for Truthout’s future and the future of democracy. As we cover the news of today and look to the near and distant future we need your help to keep our journalists writing.
Please do what you can today to help us keep working for the coming months and beyond.
