If Walls Could Talk
We are in a very special moment. Recently a dear friend of mine and great comrade told me about an art project that she is embarking on that connects incarcerated mothers and their children. For those who don’t know, women of color represent one of the fastest growing prison populations, so much so their growth is outpacing that of men of color. These booms in incarceration are additionally painful because many of these women were living with their children prior to incarceration. Katie Yamasaki has stepped up to craft an amazing project that begins the work of healing families that are being torn apart by the criminal (in)justice system. I can’t express the beauty of this project so I’ll let her tell you about it. Please watch the video, please donate (there are are only a few days left but she wants to raise over the goal to fully fund the project), and spread the word.
