Lasting effects beyond prison walls

2017 was our first annual holiday toy drive. We sent presents to 83 (!!!) children on behalf of their incarcerated loved one. 11% of children in Indiana have or had a parent who is or was incarcerated at some point during their life, making Indiana the state with the second highest percentage of children harmed by parental incarceration. Prisons tear families and communities apart, and IDOC Watch is striving to mitigate the genocidal effects of taking people from their communities as much as we can.
