International Coalition for Children with Incarcerated Parents – INCCIP.
The May 2015 Dallas meeting at which we Launched International the Network of organizations and individuals working on issues of Children with Incarcerated parents ended with out an agreed name, but recommended a select committee to decide on the name basing on a ring of words that had to be considered.
On September 8th 2015 , a select Committee meeting chaired by Ben Raikes agreed that the name of the network Shall be International Coalition for Children with Incarcerated Parents whose acronym is INCCIP .
The members included Nancy Loucks, Connie Grier and Ben Raikes. Thank you Ben and Team.
We also thank Verna Mcferlin for having proposed that name, although she did not attend the meeting but her ideas and proposal were so helpful.
