What We Do

  • We facilitate Rites of Passage programs and monthly circles for youth, young adults, and community members.
  • We advocate to end mass incarceration, and instead invest in community-based resources focused on education, job training, and mental health that enable everyone to lead healthy and successful lives.
  • We work with various agencies, organizations, and philanthropy to train their staff through the auspice of cultural healing and technical assistance.
  • We work with youth and young adults who are formerly incarcerated or system impacted to pursue higher education through mentorship and internships that foster their leadership and life-career planning. 
  • We work inside and outside carceral institutions while breaking the cycle of intergenerational trauma, systemic racism, and mass incarceration.
