There is a really cool program in Washington whose mission is to provide a rigorous college program to incarcerated women to create pathways to higher education after women are released from prison.
It's the Freedom Education Project Puget Sound.
They recently joined us and we had with us Dr. Tanya Erzen, Associate Professor at the University of Puget Sound, and Director of the Freedom Education Project Puget Sound.
We were also joined by Paris Coulter, formerly incarcerated at the Washington Corrections Center for Women; she participated in the Freedom Education Project Puget Sound program while inside and she's now a student at Seattle Central College, a painter and a mom.
