Kathleen Macferran at TEDx

What’s the impact of Freedom Project programs on prisoners? In this video Freedom Project facilitator Kathleen Macferran shares personal stories from workshops she has facilitated in prison.

After viewing the video, Freedom Project volunteer, Phil Schulman, commented “The work of Freedom Project is transformative–not only for the prisoners, but also for those of us who go in to offer these programs.  Last year I had the opportunity to go into prison several times a week…The quality of work, learning and sharing that I experienced in prison, knocked loudly at my heart…On a regular basis I was deeply inspired by the great hunger for learning that so many men and women expressed there. Their vulnerability, their willingness to hear and be influenced by their peers, their willingness to “get honest” amazed me…”
