Dear all,

I am wondering if anyone on the urbanth listserv could suggest to me where I
might find sources of funding for studying the criminalization of
racial/ethnic minority youth living in situations of poverty. I am doing an
exhaustive search, and I do not want to overlook any possibilities. This is
for my dissertation research, which focuses on the experiences and
perspectives of minority youth living in a low-income neighborhood in a
large U.S. city. Like youth in urban ghettos in other cities across the
country (and the world), they are the daily targets of police harassment and
violence and they are being criminalized through a variety of social
institutions, public policies, media, and popular discourses. I am working
with a local youth activist nonprofit organization, and my research has a
PAR component. If you know of any potential sources of funding, be they for
dissertation research or for community based organizations, please let me
know off list at Lance.Arney at gmail.com.

Thank you,
