Marshall Project and New York Times examining challenges for families of incarcerated persons

The Marshall Project has partnered this week with the New York Times on what will be a five part series of pieces exploring issues facing the families of persons who are incarcerated. Here are the headlines and links to the first three parts of this series:

"The Hidden Cost of Incarceration: Prison costs taxpayers $80 billion a year. It costs some families everything they have."

"The Long Journey to Visit a Family Member in Prison: Remote prison towns and strict visitation policies make it hard to stay in touch."

"Can You Hear Me Now?: Prison officials tout video visitation’s convenience. Families say they’re paying high rates for second-rate service"
