Mother’s Day review of moms in incarceration nation

Growing awareness and concern with incarceration levels in the US are reflected in the significant number of articles I have noticed this week discussing incarcerated mothers.  I figure Mother’s Day is a fitting day to round-up some of these recent pieces:

From The Crime Report here, “Mother’s Day Behind Bars”

From Teen Vogue here, “Mother’s Day Needs to Be Inclusive of Incarcerated Moms, and Here’s How You Can Help”

From USA Today here, “In remembering her own mother, activist and attorney makes Mother’s Day plea for incarcerated women”

From Jezebel here, “Mothers Are Incarcerated at Record Rates, Yet Prison-Nursery Beds Go Empty”

From Leafy here, “9 Ways to Help Moms Jailed for Cannabis”

From Yahoo here, “Mom serving 16 years for marijuana pens Mother’s Day letter to daughters: ‘I’m dreaming of your sleepy faces'”
