Building Capacity for Women and Girls in Prison

 

There is never room for racism in our work, our actions, our companies, our communities.

unPrison Project stands with our communities, friends, and families in condemning all acts of violence. We want to be a force of change, starting with ourselves.


Today, over 250,000 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’s mission is to empower incarcerated women and girls by teaching life skills, cultivating critical thinking, creating plans for life after prison, and helping those in prisons stay connected to their children. We also strive to bring more public awareness to the needs and lives of incarcerated women and their children.

To date, the unPrison Project has already reached over 20,000 incarcerated women, or 10% of the total female prison population in the U.S
