The Giving Back Project

The Giving Back Project
The men at Kern Valley State Prison and Lancaster Prison in Southern California spearheaded The Giving Back Project in early 2020. This initiative identifies creative ways for people who are incarcerated to give back to their communities. This creativity can come in the form of writing, art, music, educational ideas or whatever the imagination designs.

Based on this model, CPP hopes to help facilitate The Giving Back Project in other communities. Murals, other forms of public art and artistic expression, ‘zines created, written and published by people who are incarcerated are just a few examples of what can arise out of The Giving Back Project.
