Fathers’ Day for the children of prisoners

Something as simple as spending time with dad on Father’s Day isn’t easy for California kids who have a father in prison. So a group of volunteers buses hundreds of families to correctional facilities around the state on Father’s Day weekend.

This aired on The California Report on Monday morning.  A shorter version was on KQED’s evening newscast Friday evening.
