For girls with mothers in prison, a summer camp offers much-needed support


Estimates show that over five million children in the U.S. have had an incarcerated parent. As the number of women in American prison soars, little is known about the impact on children they leave behind. Amna Nawaz went to Texas to meet the children and report on how an organization, Girls Embracing Mothers, is connecting girls and their mothers. It’s part of our “Searching for Justice” series.
