Total Children with a parent incarcerated:
  • In America, incarceration numbers are now too large – absurdly large, dangerously large – to continue to ignore with eventual, fragmented action and political pandering.

  • There are lots of well-meaning efforts and organizations devoted to reversing the impact of mass incarceration. These actions are not optimized because these efforts remain disconnected from each other.

  • Hence despite the best of efforts, too many families fall through the cracks; suffering the effects of desperate living and the collateral consequences associated with mass incarceration. - Prisoner Heatmap

The National Incarceration Association

is a relationship-driven movement that addresses the impact of incarceration through the lens of families; a movement to connect what works – to what is still needed – to what we know we have the power to do.
