About the Event

Brooklyn Public Library Justice Initiatives Series: Every Challenge is an Opportunity: How NYC Can Meet Needs of Children w/Incarcerated Parents

Join us for a special virtual discussion as part of the Osborne Association's See Us, Support Us month dedicated to raising visibility and supports for the 1 in 14 children who experience the incarceration of a parent. Hear from people with lived experience about what “support” means to them and learn about tools for supporting young people in educational and afterschool settings from early childhood through college. And, learn about efforts underway to better coordinate New York City’s response to children whose parents are involved in the criminal legal system, including efforts to reimagine school safety and the movement for police free schools.

Register here!
