SITE LEADERS' MESSAGE

This spring break, we are taking a trip to the San Quentin Prison and Bay Area where we will be learning about the challlenges currently and formerly incarcerated individuals face as how their surrouding communites are affected. We will learn about the ways in which local oranizations in the Bay Area are currently combatting the negative effects of incarceration and reducing incarceration rates through preventative measures. This is great opportunity to learn the history of mass incarceration and provide service to those that have been affected by the criminal justice system!
