Join our #WordsMatter campaign to use humanizing language to refer to PEOPLE and PARENTS who are incarcerated or have come home, and replace "visitation" with "visits" or "visiting" (visitation is a term used by systems that separate families or in religious contexts).
5 Reasons to Support Visiting
Join us in using humanizing and child-friendly language when speaking
about visiting an incarcerated loved one at a correctional facility. Families “visit.” Systems that separate families – criminal justice, child welfare, immigration – use the term “visitation.”
