2017 THEME

The See Us, Support Us 2017 campaign will increase visibility of the unique needs and challenges of young children who have experienced parental incarceration, including a focus on the resiliency and needs of the caregivers who support them when their parent or parents go to prison or jail.

One powerful way to promote the campaign and its message is through social media. Engaging on social by sharing content with your followers can increase the number of voices who are speaking up for children of incarcerated parents.
