ABOUT SISTERS UNCHAINED:
Sisters Unchained is a learning experience for young women between the ages of 14 and 18, with formerly or currently incarcerated parents. A major aspect of the program is to provide our young women with knowledge on oppressive systems like the prison industrial complex and the negative impact it has on our communities. What makes this program so special is the development of our sisterhood. That is who we are to one another. We are sisters. We are family. We are sisters who empower one another. Who support one another. Who challenge one another. Who have the courage to love one another in a world that tells us often that we are not worthy or deserving. Sisters Unchained is about learning the truth about ourselves and learning how to hold on to that truth.
