Standing up for young americans

147 Notes

Meet Alex, the newest Muppet on Sesame Street. He’s being introduced this week to help children with an incarcerated parent discuss their feelings about what it’s like growing up with a parent in prison. 1 in 28 children are growing up with at least one incarcerated parent; that’s more children than have a parent deployed, but it’s less discussed due to the social stigma. http://on.fb.me/111FvBj
