This Black Teen Developed an App to Help Incarcerated Parents Stay Connected to Their Kids

When one family member becomes incarcerated, the entire family suffers collateral consequences. Of them all, exorbitant prices for limited communication and the inability to make in-person visits take one of the worse tolls. Due to their personal experience with the unjust and oppressive prison system, teen-aged Jay’Aina “Jay Jay” Patton and her father Antoine, an ex-prisoner, developed Photo Patch, a program and mobile app that connects imprisoned parents to their children.
