One in 25 white children born in 1990 had a parent who was imprisoned, while one in four black children born that year had a parent imprisoned, found researchers at Justice Strategies, in a new report, “Children on the Outside.”

The study details the harm experienced by some of the 1.7 million minor children with a parent in prison, a population that has grown with the explosion of the U.S. prison population.
