AKA and Delta judges team up to fight the prison pipeline

http://www.mediamoxye.com/aka-delta-judges-team-program-fight-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.

The program was created by four elected judges who are members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Judge Shequitta Kelly presides over Dallas County’s Misdemeanor Family Violence Criminal Court #11. She was initiated into Delta Sigma Theta in the fall of 1998 through the Gamma Nu chapter on the campus of Indiana University. She is #8 of the 18 R.E.N.O.W.N.E.D. line. www.shequittakelly.com
