Incarcerated mothers, who are disproportionately poor women of color, survivors of domestic violence, and non-violent offenders, are one of the fastest growing prison populations in California. Studies of incarcerated women in Californias state prison population consistently find that at least 65% of women are mothers of minor children. In Los Angeles, there are roughly 1,800 jailed mothers at any given time. Similarly, the majority of men incarcerated in state prisons are fathers of minor children. Currently, there are approximately 1.7 million children in the United States who have a parent incarcerated in a state or federal prison, and there are over 12 million children who have had an incarcerated parent or a parent who has been under some form of correctional supervision. These children often experience significant negative effects on their development, school performance, mental health, etc. This panel will explore the effects that domestic violence has on parents and children, and the specific connection between domestic violence and parental incarceration. The panelists will discuss their work with survivors of domestic violence who have been routed into the criminal justice system. Finally, the panel will provide information on children of incarcerated parents and formerly incarcerated parents and their work on building a reentry based family law practice. Presenters: Meredith Alexander, JD, Honorable Marguerite Downing, Karina Estrella, Katherine Ojeda Stewart, JD, Ian Russ, Ph.D.
