Women’s History Month began as a congressional joint resolution in 1981 and a presidential proclamation from Jimmy Carter to declare a week of celebratory observance for “American women of every race, class, and ethnic background whose roles and contributions had been consistently overlooked and undervalued in the body of American History.”  

I am looking for participants to interview for my Master's Thesis project. 

Are you a formerly incarcerated person who identifies as a woman or femme? I would love to speak with you about your experience in prison/jail! If you know someone who may be interested, please share the flyer below with them. 

Each participant will receive a $50 digital gift card. 

Feel free to message with any questions or email me at mniness@udel.edu. Thank you for your help!

Rockwood Leadership Institute, in partnership with Ascendium, is proud to announce the 2024 Fellowship for Leaders in Higher Education in Prison for formerly incarcerated leaders!

Hey, Everybody!

I want to take this week's post as an opportunity to uplift my girl, Brittany LaMarr! Brittany is a formerly incarcerated prison education advocate, works with the National Prison Debate League (and was instrumental in making arrangements for the establishment and launch of the MCC Women's Debate team, along with NPDL Director Daniel Throop).

Join Team CPE! This Women's History Month, we're hiring our first-ever coordinator for full-time focus on our program at York CI -- where CPE has created rigorous college access for incarcerated women in CT for 10 years running. Looking forward to adding a passionate collaborator to this project and community.

What does Education in Action look like in practice? Since its inception, the U.S. prison system has functioned to separate people from their families, communities, and the people they harmed. The system has also functioned to prevent people who have caused harm from engaging in any meaningful reparative action.
