Invisible Sentence Recognizing, Supporting, and Advocating for Children of Incarcerated and Returning Parents12/2/2022
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
Location: Zoom: Virtual Webinar
On any given day, there are an estimated 2.7 million children in the US with at least one incarcerated parent (17,000+ in NC), with reports showing that more than 5.2 million children (160,000 in NC) have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives. This virtual workshop 60 minutes will focus on what we know about the children, impacts of parental incarceration and re-entry, resource and data gaps, ways to collaborate to meet their needs, and the importance of hearing from the children themselves. Participants will be encouraged to continue the conversation within their own organizations.
