The 4th Annual Children of Incarcerated Parents National Conference
In the United States, over 2 million children have a parent who is currently incarcerated. Each spring, the ASU Center for Child Well-Being hosts the Children of Incarcerated Parents National Conference to further a national dialogue on how to support children and families impacted by Parental incarceration.
The 4th Annual Children of Incarcerated Parents National Conference will take place virtually on three Wednesdays: March 30, April 6 and April 13, 2022, from 8 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Please join us for this unique three-day event as we continue working toward the goals of creating awareness, expansion of programming, collaboration and advocacy for children and families. This year's theme, "leading the future: young people as partners for change," focuses on elevating the voices of children, youth and families whose lives have been impacted by incarceration.
The conference includes plenaries, panels, focused sessions and workshops, many of which include youth voices and those with lived experience, in three main tracks:
- Understanding the effects of incarceration on children, youth, their families and caregivers.
- Connecting children, youth and families during and after incarceration.
- Supporting and centering the voices and experiences of children and youth.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to connect with others to network, learn, share best practices and engage in action planning.
