Looking back to our first two years, the focus of the National Children of Incarcerated Parents Conference has been on building awareness and collaboration. This year, our audacious conference goal is to expand programming, advocacy and policy, across the country in a big way.
We have been inspired by the feedback from prior conference attendees who have been motivated to return home and put in place programming. That is a great start!We are also dismayed at the lack of policy at the federal, state and local levels that would better the lives of these children and their families. In order to meet this year’s goal we will be offering tracks in the following three areas:
Track One: Service & Practice in Programs and Systems
Track Two: Community Advocacy
Track Three: Promoting Public Policy
