“I didn’t expect to learn so much. I didn’t expect to grow and change as a result of the process….As I reflect on the power of this course, I am awestruck and humbled...and certain that I do not want it to end here.”
“[This class] has acted as the catalyst in my passion for life and human rights, and was the pivotal point where I realigned my own path. This program has brought me to a new understanding of life, not just in prison, but in my own life. I have acquired the concrete knowledge of the true inter-workings of the system, and at the same time come to realize my own captors in life. I have heard the stories, felt the smiles, and seen the tears of women who have been to hell and back and with them I have found a voice.”
