Home Poems from Sister Circles - Sponsored by California Arts Council & San Francisco Art Commission

Through grants received by the California Arts Council and San Francisco Arts Commission, YWFC hosted creative writing and audio storytelling workshops that engaged incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women, and queer and transgender women and gender nonconforming (TGNC) people in particular, in building voice and building power. Together we created media that challenges perceptions of system-involved women and TGNC and that supports organizing for change. We built siblinghood and community through this work as well.
