“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people and people of color,” Kaepernick has since said. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Wings For L.I.F.E. – Life-skills Imparted to Families through Education, is an empowerment program that provides life-skills, education, training, and support for family members/caregivers of prisoners (returning citizens) and at-risk youth. Some of the educational topics that are addressed include single parenting, finances – how to stretch a dollar, discipline, acceptance issues, prison visits, feeding a family, substance abuse and signs, reintegration and reunification issues, legal issues, public defenders, work/job issues, holidays, and anything else of interest to the group. Search Institute’s® 40 Developmental Assets® are incorporated into the training.
In our society where children are all at risk in one way or another, children whose parent(s) are in prison face even more challenges.
