Kerry Tucker and Helen Barnacle (pictured above) shared their journeys through the criminal justice system in a facilitated panel discussion on 6 March to mark International Women’s Day. While incarcerated, Ms Tucker wrote a children’s story book designed to encourage visits between mothers in prison and their children with their carers. The session raised money for the VACRO Children’s Foundation, set up to help Victorian children adversely affected by parental contact with the criminal justice system.
