  • Over the course of several perfectly sunny Saturday afternoons, I gathered a group of teenagers and young adults who have in some way been affected by having an incarcerated parent. We met at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism, where I planned to teach them how to use video to document how their parents' incarceration has affected their lives.

These folks were motivated by a desire to share their experience so that others who were in their position realized they were not alone. But these video workshops provide another important benefit.

Did I mention that there is no charge for the workshops?
