She concluded by saying that if we do not attend to the effects of imprisonment on children, we face the possibility of punishing innocent victims, neglecting a seriously at risk group and possibly causing crime in the next generation.
The participants were very engaged in the meeting. The coalition will focus on Public awareness, Advocacy and Research on children with parents in prison.
We invite all stake holders and the state to come on board for this cause in order to change the lives of children with parents in prison.
We thank our sponsors.
