Every year, there are more and more children with an incarcerated parent. More than 2.7 million children in the U.S. have an incarcerated parent. That is 1 in 28 children!
Approximately 10 million children have experienced parental incarceration at some point in their lives.
Anyé Young published her self-help book
for teenagers with incarcerated parents: Teen Guide to Living With Incarcerated Parents: #TGLWIP
--- which provides insight into the inner-turmoils of a child dealing with the shame, embarrassment and anger of having a parent in prison.
She continues to use her voice to encourage and empower children & the caregivers who have or are still suffering the effects of parental incarceration. This fundraiser will cover the cost of Anyé Young's European Book Tour in 2019.

Parental incarceration increases the risk of children living in poverty or experiencing household instability. A misconception exists that children of incarcerated parents are more likely to be incarcerated than their peers, and are predisposed to criminal activity. There is no basis for this in existing research.
Parental incarceration is now recognized as an “adverse childhood experience” (ACE); it is distinguished from other adverse childhood experiences by the unique combination of trauma, shame, and stigma.
