Anti-Oppression Mass Incarceration Workshop

Freedom Project Anti-Oppression Mass Incarceration Workshops explore the racist roots of mass incarceration and how it intersects with other forms of oppression. We work together to develop a basic anti-oppression framework, especially for individuals interested in volunteering in Freedom Project prison programs. (This is an all-ages event.)

RSVP is helpful but not required.

Re-entry (Re)Call

Re-entry (Re)Call is a weekly phone support circle just for folks who have experienced incarceration, to support each other navigating the hurdles of re-entry.  Some people join the call in their first few days after release, some have been out for a while and understand what people are going through. We share resources, networks and give and receive emotional and community support.
Every Friday from 6:00-7:00 PM
