Our nonclinical mental health group gives former incarcerated individuals the opportunity to support themselves and support others in the community.
We are a support community for returning citizens.
We understand the challenges and stigma associated with having a criminal record and the impact it has on one's life.
Our mission is to increase the economic, political, and social capital in the United States.
We provide a safe and supportive space for members to share their experiences, find resources, and connect with others who have been in similar situations.
Join us as we work towards reclaiming our lives and our stories, and breaking down the barriers of stigma.
is a slogan and social movement that emphasizes the importance of giving marginalized communities a voice and agency in decisions that affect them. It highlights the idea that no one can truly represent or make decisions on behalf of a community without their active participation and consent.
This slogan can be used by various organizations and advocacy groups to advocate for the rights and representation of marginalized communities, such as people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and marginalized groups. By empowering these communities and ensuring that their voices are heard, society can move towards greater equity and inclusion for all.
