According to the Pew Research Center, there are 2.7 million children in America who have an incarcerated parent or family member. 

The beloved children’s show, Sesame Street has not only introduced a Muppet character named Alex with an incarcerated parent, but also an online toolkit providing videos, facts and resource guides to help support and comfort those affected by this issue.

LONG WALK TO FREEDOM

Sat Oct 19 9:00 am
This year’s walk, scheduled for October 19th, will begin at Richmond City Jail as usual. This year’s theme is “Working together to Reduce Recidivism”.

If you are not familiar with this event, The Long Walk to Freedom is designed to achieve two goals: 1) raise awareness of the challenges facing released prisoners and 2) raise funds for programs that provide solutions to these challenges.

The registration fee for the walk is $15 of which $10 goes to the solution provider of your choice and $5 go towards the cost for planning the walk.

Thank you participants!
