Webinar opportunity - Family Connections in Correctional Facilities

62 Views
Message 1 of 1

Just FYI. This popped up in my email today. A free webinar on a new programming model that is expected to reduce barriers between inmates and their children.  I post because it was one of the constant retorts from conservatives who were trying to justify Trump’s separating migrant children from their parents — that liberals are hypocrites because of all the inmate parents in prison.  Why don’t liberals care about their kids? 

 

Well, we do. And we work on finding solutions.  These things don’t get covered much in the news. So here you go.

“Nearly 5 million US children have experienced the incarceration of a parent. Research demonstrates that parental incarceration contributes to emotional, financial, and residential instability among children and their caregivers, which can have significant short- and long-term ramifications for their lives. The Urban Institute has collaborated with the National Institute of Corrections, Bureau of Justice Assistance, Community Works, and subject-matter experts to develop actionable, low-cost, high-impact model practices and activities that can reduce the barriers to contact and communication between incarcerated parents and their children (Model Practices for Parents in Jail and Prison: Reducing Barriers to Family Connections).”
