Wanted: Mentors for inmates’ kids – [Alternative is to stop sending so many to people prison]

See on Scoop.itDrugs, Society, Human Rights & Justice

A programme to help prisoners’ children is desperately short of mentors – especially men. – New Zealand Herald

Julian Buchanan‘s insight:

Even better than mentors – let’s stop so many parents being sent to prison in the first place – we have a shameful incarceration rate here in New Zealand and it’s much much worse for indigenous people.  

Māori incarceration rate is 700 per 100k
