Women in prison deserve access to the arts, life skills, and capacity building

Our Focus: Break the Cycle

At unPrison Project our goal is to uplift the potential of women and girls in prison by working to:
  • Build better lives for women in prison
  • Unlock Potential
  • Make a Better World.

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 through four goals:

  • Life skills
  • Cultivating critical thinking
  • Create plans for life after prison
  • 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
