Default Conference aims to break the cycle for inmates' children and siblings

Young people who have imprisoned parents or siblings gathered Saturday at workshops in Woodland designed to lead them away from a lifestyle of drugs and crime, despite obstacles they may face.The second annual conference offered selected young people "an opportunity to break the intergenerational cycle of incarceration," said Debra Herndon, associate director of female offender programs and services at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. "These kids have the potential to lead successful and productive lives."
Children from Sacramento, San Joaquin, Solano and Yolo counties were chosen to attend the event, held at Woodland Community College by CDCR, the nonprofit Friends Care and members of the state judiciary.
The workshops focused on coping skils, anger management, conflict resolution, lessons on the negative impacts of gangs and appreciation for the consequences of personal choice. Workshop leaders included Folsom State Prison Warden Rick Hill, Central California Women's Facility Chief Deputy Warden Deborah K. Johnson, Sacramento County Sheriff's Detective Brandon Luke and Eric Nicholls of the Sacramento County Office of Education.
Money for the conference was donated by inmates from correctional facilities throughout the state, the Woodland Professional Firefighters Association, the Ironwood State Prison Braille program, and the Woodland Soccer Club.

I wish my love knew about how to donate to such charities, he would have told me, and I would have funded it
