The New York Initiative for Children of Incarcerated Parents invites you to join SEE US, SUPPORT US, a month-long, national campaign to increase supports for children with incarcerated parents throughout the year. We invite you to take action to SEE the strength and resilience of children, their caregivers, and parents, and SUPPORT them by reducing the stigma and systemic barriers they face. We hope you will join our campaign in October 2017, but don't wait until then to become an ambassador for the Children's Bill of Rights

You can create change that supports positive outcomes for children and families NOW! By taking the See Us, Support Us Pledge and learning how to support these children, you can help them succeed and lessen the stigma they face. Visit the Toolkit for resources, and connect with our TwitterFacebook, and Instagram pages for updates.
