1 in 28 children in the United States has a parent that is in jail or prison. Now recognized as an "adverse childhood experience" (ACE), parental incarceration contributes toward a greater risk of health outcomes like cancer, chronic osbtructive pulmonary disease and liver disease.
Community Resource Initiative is a nonprofit investigation office and resource center. We build narratives to challenge the death penalty, improve the standard of care, and advocate for the value of human life. We collaborate with families and communities impacted by the judicial system to facilitate safety, growth, and resilience.
Join us in support as our community swims from Alcatraz to raise awareness about the effects of imprisonment on our children and families.
