Jessica, Elsa, Kei-Arri, Tyanni, Glorious, GabbyAT POPS the CLUB we strive to support, nourish and nurture young people affected by the sorrow, trauma, shame and stigma that too often follow in the wake of the incarceration of a loved one. We help them to share Our Stories.  These are young people with important tales to tell, important stories for all of us to hear. We are pleased that our nation is beginning to take note of the true costs of mass incarceration, costs felt deeply in the community outside as well as on those living behind bars. On this page we share with you some of the news. Please join in the conversation with our community by reading our students’ stories, fostering a keener understanding of how mass incarceration affects us all. We welcome your comments and hope you will follow @popstheclub on social media. Please also consider purchasing our POPS the Club anthologies for your schools, your community libraries, and yourselves.

We also share some articles and stories we think are of utmost importance.
