On Thursday, March 28, 2019, join journalists and researchers for a discussion at Texas Christian University Bob Schieffer College of Communication on the impact of jail-time on a family—particularly on the children of those incarcerated. The conversation also will turn to the United States' prison industrial complex and how prison reform issues are examined.

This day-long event consists of two panels. The morning session features Pulitzer Center grantee Jaime Joyce of TIME for Kids Magazine, whose project, "Children of the Incarcerated" examines efforts to connect kids with parents who are serving time in California. The panel also includes investigative reporter Cary Aspinwall of The Dallas Morning News, and Pulitzer Center Outreach Coordinator Hana Carey. 

The afternoon session features Pulitzer Center grantee Pete Brook, whose reporting and photography focuses on the United States’ prison industrial complex, and Dr. Kendra Bowen, an assistant professor for the TCU Department of Criminal Justice. The session concludes with the announcement of the 2019 TCU-Pulitzer Center International Reporting Student Fellowship Award.
