WHO WE ARE

ABOUT THE 10 MILLION

We represent an invisible population of children & young adults impacted by parental incarceration.

There are over 10M of us Nationwide.

We endure 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…

WE ARE THE COLLECTIVE AUTHORS OF OUR PERSONAL NARRATIVES.

WE WILL ELIMINATE THE STIGMA & SHAME OF OUR EXPERIENCE.

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR US.
