Through stark portraits and children’s own powerful words, this exhibit offers a glimpse into the lives of some of the more than three million children with a parent in prison.
As Nell Bernstein, author of the book 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 is a documentary project of the MCC U.S. restorative justice program and Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding. This exhibit is also available in expanded form with additional photos and information for caregivers in a book What Will Happen to Me? by Howard Zehr and Lorraine Stutzman Amstutz.
Details: 12 two-sided panels set up in pairs, displays well on two 8-foot tables.
Groups may reserve the display by emailing email@example.com or contacting MCC U.S. at (717) 859-1151. Groups pay shipping and handling plus a $50 rental fee.
