OUR MISSION

is to enhance the lives of those students who have been impacted by the pain of the prison system—those with incarcerated loved ones and those who have been incarcerated themselves. We establish and sustain high-school clubs that offer students community and emotional support as well as opportunities to publish the writings and artwork they create through the club
