When a friend of mine got locked up, he told his young daughter he was away at school. It made me wonder,
"Where do people say they’ve been or their incarcerated loved ones are, if not the truth?"
I’ve heard school, the military, and even dead.
There are 2.2 million people in the U.S. prison system, and 7 million under correctional supervision.
Talking about the whereabouts of our friends and family, or even our own incarceration, can be taboo. #WhereIsEverybody explores how Americans talk about incarceration or don’t. And what's at stake.
