When a Parent is in Prison

When a Parent is in Prison is a documentary project of Mennonite Central Committee’s Office on Justice & Peacebuilding and Eastern Mennonite University‘s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. The photo exhibit provides a glimpse into the lives of the two million, four hundred thousand children who have a parent in prison. As Nell Bernstein, author of “All Alone in the World” has stated “These children have committed no crime, but the price they are forced to pay is steep. They forfeit too much of what matters to them: their homes, their safety, their public status and private self-image, their primary source of comfort and affection. Their lives are profoundly affected.”
This photo documentary will be in the Luria Library for ONE WEEK ONLY. Come by and see these powerful images.
Leading the initiative are Howard Zehr, Professor of Restorative Justice at the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, and Lorraine Stutzman Amstutz, director of Mennonite Central Committee‘s office on crime and justice.
