OUR PROJECTS

Six Week Summer Program

More than just a summer program. We are committed to reclaiming our truths and setting ourselves free from the stigma around incarceration. And, in the end, we hope that everyone leaves our 6 week program with three fundamental things:

  1. A critical analysis of the prison industrial complex and how it has shaped our individual and collective experience, especially as women of color.

  2. A deepened sense of self awareness and self love.

  3. Courage and support to make the change they seek.
