Deviance, Crime, and Violence in Social Context

CFDR Affiliates are interrogating the U.S. criminal legal system, highlighting the pervasive inequalities that disproportionately affect the health and well-being of racially minoritized groups. The systemic racism that has always been present in the U.S., driving residential, school, employment, health, and other inequalities, is part and parcel of its carceral system. The collateral damage of the criminal legal system is widespread, diminishing individual, child, couple, and family well-being. Further, after years of social science and public health exhortation, there is growing recognition that the overwhelming focus on the criminal aspects of behaviors such as substance use and violence within families neglects the micro- and macro-contexts and inequalities that drive population-level differences. CFDR is linked to two projects uniquely suited for studying deviance, crime, and violence: the Toledo Adolescent Relationships Study (TARS) and The Henry A. Wallace Police Crime Database
