As more and more of Americans go to jail, more and more parents go to jail. The children of the incarcerated is a community of folks now known as "hidden victims." Though not directly victimized by a crime, they are victims nonetheless. It is estimated that nearly 3 million children in the US have a father or mother currently incarcerated. Over 10 million children have experienced some type of incarceration of their parents within their childhood. Jonathan Platt’s Story Chain project attempts to address this serious issue in a unique and innovative way.
