We’re here to share the stories of incarcerated women with you – the community at large – to increase understanding and compassion about who these women are and how prison impacts their lives.

“I come to have a voice and be heard. To give our pain a face, and have our superiors look that beast in the eyes. I want the fire that I feel inside to ignite the wick of idea, of voice. I want to help. To feel helped.”
