THE UNACCOUNTED EPIDEMIC

ABOUT THE 10 MILLION

We represent an invisible population of children & young adults impacted by parental incarceration.
We are the Collateral Consequences of mass incarceration in the United States.
Our Stories are often Unknown & Untold,
Our Traumas are Misdiagnosed & Overlooked,
Our Futures are often Misrepresented
and Our Experiences are Unheard…

There are over 10M of us Nationwide.

WE ARE THE COLLECTIVE AUTHORS OF OUR PERSONAL NARRATIVES.

WE WILL ELIMINATE THE STIGMA & SHAME OF OUR EXPERIENCE.

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR US.

It’s an emotional rollercoaster that we’ve lived for so many years... For so long....
I never...ever...discussed this with anybody because I never knew that anybody was going through this.
