In 2016-17 and through a common funder, several community based, in-prison program providers, including the Insight Prison Project, Insight Garden Program, GRIP Program and Center for Council (known as the Transformative Prison Workgroup or TPW) developed a collective goal to focus on issues related to in-prison programming in California, and to eventually form a unified voice/association that will have more impact statewide than any one program alone.

Over the course of the past year, our network has grown to more than 20 organizations, and includes the participation of formerly incarcerated people. Our community-based programs include work on restorative justice, healing, trauma, meditation, acting, eco-literacy and are proven to be powerful spaces for incarcerated men and women in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR).

  • Experience convening stakeholders and facilitating stakeholder meetings across geographic and issues area virtually and in person
