The most effective and impactful change comes from within our own communities, and for far too long ex-incarcerated individuals have been driven to the shadows and not given a voice. The E.X.P.O. program looks to give power and voice back to these individuals – back to YOU. We believe that it is simply not enough to just continue meeting the short-term and basic needs of returning citizens. Our goal is to build power among communities of color to fight the oppressive system that disproportionately affects people of color and prevents returning citizens from becoming fully integrated into society. Please join us for these monthly meetings, and bring your loved ones, all are welcome!
