Insight Garden Program offers an innovative 48-week curriculum built around "connection to self, community and nature" for incarcerated people in nine prisons in California. Our program offers an experiential, mindfulness-based curriculum that explores meditation, permaculture, eco-literacy, vocational and re-entry skills through a trauma-informed curriculum. Insight Garden Program is programming on two yards at CSP Lancaster Prison. We seek volunteers who can commit to joining us for class at Lancaster at least once or twice a month on Fridays.
Testif-i, a storytelling project of A New Way of Life, is seeking the stories of formerly incarcerated women, as well as the children of formerly/currently incarcerated women, to help channel energy into the movement to end mass incarceration.
