The Children of Incarcerated Parents National Conference is Being Postponed

In light of the most recent recommendations from the CDC, we have decided to postpone the Children of Incarcerated Parents Conference to a date that will be determined at a later time.

It is our hope that many of you will still be able to attend, present, exhibit or sponsor CIP 2020 when we have a firm date for the rescheduled conference. As we future plan for CIP 2020, we will send email updates as information becomes available.

It is our hope that we will be able to proceed with the conference agenda and plans as they currently exist at a future date, but realize that will be dependent upon everyone's schedules and availability.

If you need to cancel your current registration please email childwellbeing@asu.edu with "Registration Cancellation" in the subject line.

We look forward to the time when we can deliver what was shaping up to be a really fantastic conference.

Picture book – Young readers/school-age readers

 

Visiting Day is beautifully illustrated, with rich, vibrant images of an African American family experiencing a visit with an incarcerated father. A little girl looks forward to visiting her incarcerated father with her grandmother. She and her grandmother prepare for the visit, getting dressed up, preparing food and riding the bus. When the visit is over, they look forward to the next visit, but also the day that the father will live with them again. The prose is relatable and accessible, telling a difficult story exquisitely.

 

The story is primarily relatable to children of incarcerated parents, but the beautiful illustrations and positive stories are compelling enough to assist other children to understand visiting a parent.

 

Donate today to help lessen the stigma of incarceration through literature.
