Communication with Compassion

The Compassion Prison Project (CPP) is developing a letter writing campaign that matches people who have completed the Step Inside the Circle and ACE awareness inside a prison facility with a community letter writer. Expressive writing can be therapeutic, healing and cultivate a sense of belonging and connection.

CPP is also seeking team members and writers for its blog and newsletter, including those who are currently or formerly incarcerated, who have expertise and passion in ACE awareness, childhood trauma, non-violent communication and/or ending mass incarceration. See below for specific opportunities with this team.

Words are a form of action, capable of influencing change.
