Practitioner’s Toolkit: Women of Color in Mass Incarceration4 years ago 4 years ago Leave your thoughts
This toolkit was developed by the African American Policy Forum.
HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
Realizing that social and institutional divides are often incredibly difficult to overcome, we decided to meet in what is known as a Learning Circle – a kind of organizational structure and descriptive metaphor that is meant to symbolize the coming together of equals. The goal of the Advocate’s Toolkit is to facilitate the hosting of many more Learning Circle events across the United States, all focusing on the over incarceration of women and girls of colour.
It is our hope that by breaking down the divides between scholars and activists, allies and the formerly and currently incarcerated, as well as students and teachers, that we can form spaces where we can frankly discuss the problems at hand, and harness a collective moment to change the world.
