Kim Blankenship and Amy Smoyer contributed a chapter to a book titled Crime, HIV and Health:  Intersections of Criminal Justice and Public Health Concerns.   This chapter: “Between Spaces:  Understanding Movement to and from Prison as an HIV Risk Factor” suggests that criminal justice induced movement creates HIV risk for both individuals who are incarcerated and members of their social networks by undermining relationship, housing, and economic stability.   Blankenship and Smoyer propose that structural interventions would help to reduce what is a major health crisis in the African American community and the United States.

In the winters of 2012 and 2013 we asked all participants involved in the project to share a piece of art that reflects their unique experience.  We wanted to include some pieces here to give voice to the experience of our participants and acknowledge their contributions to our project and to the community.

Cries, Thoughts, Death, Addiction, and Prison by D.R. Hill

All accompanying artwork displayed on the site was contributed as part of the project.

New Haven Community Dissemination Event

SHARRPP participants shared their original poems and spoken word pieces at the 2014 International Festival of Arts & Ideas.  Their work reflected their experiences of incarceration and re-entry.  Two pieces were contributed by participants that were reincarcerated during the study and these pieces were recited by guest readers who were enrolled in the study.
