“These messages brought so much light to my day this year, whenever i wanted to spill tears, i looked at the msg brought in for me and remembered I AM A MOTHER.”
Our 2015 Mama’s Day Across Bars was the most successful yet! It went viral on Facebook and Twitter, and was seen by thousands. People shared personal experiences of parenting from jail, or offered comfort to parents behind bars. Over 80 messages passed across the wall, some from faraway places like New Mexico and France, and we created a video of community members offering their love in person.
