These straight-from-the-gut writings by incarcerated women will break your heart and put it back together again. - Sr. Helen Prejean, author, Dead Man Walking
These are radical, revolutionary voices because they dare us to do what society insists we must not: listen to and care about those who have been cast out and locked away.
- Michelle Alexander, legal scholar & author, The New Jim Crow:
Mass Incarceration in the Age of Color Blindness
