At Enculture Institute of Research and Program Development we work with populations that are high risk and underserved. They receive media exposure that is negative and that highlight the need for an organization that is aimed at championing their cause. To demonstrate this need we present recent news coverage of these vulnerable populations.

Female criminals are least likely to admit to their crimes. While about to be executed, women will usually express love for their criminal partners, and still refuse to admit guilt. Females make up a little over 10% of the U.S. prison population, but their crimes are becoming more violent. (national Crime and Courts)
