30th September 2016 marks 5 years since, the UN Committee on the Rights of The Child devoted its Day of General Discussion (DGD) to the topic of children of incarcerated parents.
To commemorate that day, we are observing this week as Children of Prisoners Week.
We don’t have activities lined up, but we request organizations and individuals especially those who attended that day in Geneva, to share about any progress , developments, and success stories. Send them to us, the email is firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
We will write out a special Newsletter, to feature the success stories. As you may know, at that time of the DGD , some participants raised the need for an international network that would bring all actors together. So the formation of The International Coalition for Children with Imprisoned Parents INCCIP is one of the success stories
If you have any videos you would like us to watch in regard to the DGD or of you speaking about DGD , please feel free to share them!
We also welcome any photos that you took on that day, please send them we wish to put them on the website and Facebook page.
