Our programs work to empower, inspire, and cultivate critical thinking, life skills, self-reflection, and peer mentoring.
At the same time, we bring public awareness about the needs of incarcerated women and their children.

Today, over 200,000 women are incarcerated in the United States, and 2.7 million children under the age of eighteen have a parent in prison. The unPrison Project touches them through their incarcerated mothers and in detention centers

As its founder and motivational educator, Deborah Jiang-Stein uses her unique story of hard won transformation to teach and plant seeds of change so when the women are released, they won’t return.

We feel the ongoing, positive results of the unPrison Project will benefit our communities for generations to come.
