About the Event

Arizona State University State of Incarceration Summit, Education Day

1 in 14 children has experienced the incarceration of a parent, but their experience is largely invisible. Join the Osborne Association’s New York Initiative for Children of Incarcerated Parents to hear young people who have experienced parental incarceration share how to support their educational development and learn strategies for creating affirming spaces in educational settings. Understand young people’s unique concerns related to having an incarcerated parent during COVID-19 and gain tools to support their emotional wellbeing during this unprecedented time. Participants will also learn how to participate in SUSU and raise awareness and increase support for children of incarcerated parents in their communities.

Panelists

Moderator: Allison Hollihan, New York Initiative for Children of Incarcerated Parents
