Mission

The mission of unPrison Project is to empower and inspire incarcerated women and girls with life skills and mentoring to plan and prepare for a successful life after prison.

What We Do

We provide programing to serve women and girls in prisons across the United States, to promote life skills and mentoring so inmates can achieve a better quality of life once outside prison, and never return. Part of our program is to supply materials and books for an all-prison book club in women's prisons, to encourage literacy and as training tools.
Our vision is also to draw public awareness about the rapid increase in incarceration for women, 800% over the last ten years, most sentenced for nonviolent crimes. The issue is urgent in that this is also generational. 2.3 million children, most under the age of 10 have a parent in prison. Education is one key for changing these startling figures.
